PDMI of Oman lets contract for petrochemical plant
Projects Development & Management International LLC (PDMI) of Oman has let a contract to SNC-Lavalin Group Inc., Montreal, to design and deliver a greenfield chloralkali polyvinyl chloride plant about 150 km southeast of the Omani capital of Muscat.
As part of the long-term contract, SNC-Lavalin will provide concept development to commissioning, including execution of initial engineering, master planning, and process technology evaluation and selection to support project financial investment decision approvals, the service provider said.
SNC-Lavalin said it expects to receive the subsequent engineering, procurement, and construction management contract for the project in first-quarter 2019, under which it will carry out the complete design and delivery, working alongside Omani contractors to maximize in-country value.
The service provider also will support operations and maintenance of the plant once completed.
At an overall capital cost of about $1.5 billion, the project will produce about 225,000 tonnes/year of PVC destined for the Asia Pacific, as well as about 140,000 tpy of sodium hydroxide that will support local industries.
SNC-Lavalin disclosed no further details regarding either the proposed petrochemical plant or the specific value of the contract award.
