Canada-headquartered SNC-Lavalin announced it has been contracted to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for an anhydrous liquid ammonia plant in Salalah, Oman.
The EPC work has been authorised by owner Salalah Methanol Company (SMC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company (OOC), as it concludes the final stages of the project’s financial arrangements.
The contract covers a 1,000-tonne per day anhydrous liquid ammonia plant, including its utilities and off-site infrastructure.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to pursue our work with SMC,” said Etienne Cabanes, senior vice president for SNC-Lavalin's mining and metallurgy operation in Europe, Middle East, and North Africa.
“SNC-Lavalin is pleased to enter into this next phase of the Salalah ammonia project, which is of great importance for SMC and the Sultanate of Oman," said José J Suárez, president of mining and metallurgy at SNC-Lavalin.
