Houston-based LNG engineer KBR said Monday it won a project management consultancy services contract by LNG producing company Oman LNG for a new 120 MW gas engine power plant.
The power plant is aimed to reduce fuel gas consumption and greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining LNG production at Oman LNG’s existing LNG plant in Sur, according to a KBR statement.
Under the contract, KBR will provide project management consultancy services to assist Oman LNG in the selection and management of the successful EPC contractor for the project in Oman over a three year period.
“We are proud of the pivotal role that KBR has played in the development of this project during the pre-FEED and FEED phases and are excited to continue to grow our substantial presence in the Middle East through this contract,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific.
“KBR remains firmly committed to Oman and I am very pleased to announce that we will be establishing permanent offices based in Muscat to support this work as well as other clients in Oman,” Ibrahim said.
KBR did not reveal the value of the deal saying only that the revenue associated with this contract would be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for the company’s hydrocarbons services business in the second quarter of this year.
