The project is being planned by TOTAL E&P OMAN DEVELOPMENT B.V. (a 100% subsidiary of Total S.A.) in partnership with Oman Oil Company S.O.A.C.
According to the statement, the project consists of FEED services to construct a new medium scale LNG plant with an annual LNG production capacity of 1 million t in Sohar, which is one of the largest industrial zones in the Middle East, approximately 200 km to the west of Muscat. Growing demand is expected for LNG as a marine fuel due to new International Maritime Organization (IMO) environmental regulations being introduced at the beginning of next year.
JGC claims that it has been responsible for the construction of LNG plants that account for approximately 30% of global LNG production. Currently, the company is carrying out a total of three LNG plant construction projects. These include a large scale LNG plant in Canada, as well as floating LNG (FLNG) plants off the coast of Malaysia and off the coast of Mozambique.
In future, JGC claims that it will continue to develop its business activities in the field of small/medium scale LNG plants construction in addition to conventional, large scale LNG plants.
