SNC-Lavalin to build ammonia plant for SMC

September 2017

SNC-Lavalin, a leading engineering and construction group, has announced that it has received a notice from Salalah Methanol Company (SMC) to proceed with the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase of its anhydrous liquid ammonia plant project, located in Salalah, Oman.

 This phase follows the early works programme, which was awarded earlier this year. The EPC work has been authorised by SMC while it concludes the final stages of the project’s financial arrangements.

SMC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company (OOC), awarded SNC-Lavalin the EPC contract in March this year.

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, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, mining and metallurgy. “We look forward to ensuring the successful execution of this project with the utmost care for quality, safety, environment and the community in Salalah.”

“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, mining and metallurgy, SNC-Lavalin.

“This project demonstrates that our strong expertise is recognised by clients and major financial institutions alike, and we are committed in offering our client and the region a world-class project that they are going to be proud of.”
