Technip Energies has been awarded a contract by TotalEnergies and OQ for the Marsa LNG bunkering project located in Sohar, Oman.

The contract, worth between €500 million and €1 billion, covers Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of a natural gas liquefaction train with an LNG production capacity of 1 Mtpa. The plant will use electric-driven motors instead of conventional gas turbines and will be powered by renewable electricity from a planned nearby solar farm which will cover 100% of the annual power consumption of the LNG plant. This is positioning the site as one of the lowest greenhouse gases intensity LNG plants ever built worldwide, the companies said. The LNG produced will be used as a marine fuel to reduce the sipping industry’s carbon footprint.

The Marsa LNG project is an integrated complex developed by TotalEnergies (80%) and OQ (20%).

“The world’s net-zero trajectory will require LNG as a critical source of energy, while addressing emissions abatement,” said Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies. “TotalEnergies and OQ’s progressive Marsa LNG project is an example of how we can decarbonize the LNG value chain by powering its production with renewable energy and using it as a marine fuel to reduce emissions linked to maritime transportation

500 million and €1 billion of revenue.
