Yokogawa nets Oman LNG gig

A unit of Japanese engineering firm Yokogawa has won a contract to upgrade the distributed control system at Oman LNG’s plant in Qalhat, near Sur.

The current DCS has been in operation since Oman LNG’s launch in 2000 and would help ensure uninterrupted production of liquefied natural gas, the state-owned producer said in a statement.

In addition, the new system would provide advanced features involving cybersecurity, to protect Oman LNG facilities from potential threats, it said.

Yokogawa should complete the upgrade works by the end of 2023.

Oman LNG did not disclose the financial details of the contract.

The producer operates three LNG trains with a total capacity of 10.4 million tonnes per year sourcing gas from the central Oman gas field complex.

South Korea’s Kogas is the largest buyer of these volumes with a 4.1 mtpa deal that will end in 2024. Other buyers also include Osaka Gas, Itochu, BP Singapore and OQ.

The government of Oman holds 51% in Oman LNG while energy giant Shell has a 30% stake. Other shareholders include Total (5.54%), Korea LNG (5%), Partex (2%), Mitsubishi (2.77%), Mitsui (2.77%) and Itochu (0.92%).
