Canada’s SNC-Lavalin has been awarded a contract by Salalah Methanol Company (SMC) for the engineering, procurement and construction of an anhydrous liquid ammonia plant, including its utilities and off-site infrastructure, in the city of Salalah, Oman.

The project is expected to begin in March 2017 with SNC-Lavalin said in a press notice.

Upon closing of financing by SMC, expected to occur in June 2017, SNC-Lavalin will continue with the engineering, procurement of equipment, construction and commissioning of the facility, which will produce anhydrous liquid ammonia using a technology provided by Linde Group.

SNC-Lavalin’s Abu Dhabi office will be responsible for the project delivery.

The company has also announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Kentz Overseas has been awarded a five-year commissioning support services framework agreement by Petroleum Development Oman.

Under the agreement, the company will provide a variety of systems completions, commissioning and start-up service activities on a portfolio of oil and gas megaprojects.
