McDermott confirms significant EPC contract for Middle East LNG project

US contractor McDermott has confirmed that its wholly owned subsidiary CB&I has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth up to $250 million for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) storage tank for the Marsa LNG project in Oman.

Marsa LNG, a joint venture between TotalEnergies and OQ, is constructing the greenfield liquefaction project of the same name at Port of Sohar. The French supermajor last month took the final investment decision on the 1 million tonnes per annum Marsa LNG project and awarded Technip Energies and CB&I key contracts.

CB&I will provide turnkey EPC services for a 165,000-cubic metre full containment concrete LNG storage tank and associated piping to grade.

Project delivery will be executed in Oman, where CB&I has been present since 1968, with support from the company’s Dubai office.

Work is expected to commence with construction activities in the fourth quarter this year and the project is targeted for completion in 2028.

Technip Energies landed the EPC contract, worth up to an approximate $1 billion for the liquefaction plant for Marsa LNG, which will receive 150 million cubic feet per day of natural gas as feedstock from the 33.19% interest held by Marsa in the Mabrouk North-East field located on Block 10 onshore Oman.

“Through this project, CB&I will contribute to the construction of one of the lowest GHG emissions intensity LNG plants ever built and the energy transition market in Oman,” said CB&I chief executive Cesar Canals.

“It supports our ambition to build storage for projects that will help provide reliable energy to markets with a reduced environmental impact. It will also pave the way for similar storage opportunities in the future and continues our long history of execution excellence in the Middle East, specifically Oman.”

CB&I defines a significant contract as valued at between $100 million and $250 million.
