McDermott International, a leading engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) company, has been awarded a front-end engineering and design contract by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) for its new, carbon-efficient liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant located in the northern emirate of Fujairah.

The Fujairah LNG export terminal will include two trains, each with a 4.8 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG capacity.  The facility will also likely feature LNG storage tanks, an export jetty with an option for bunkering, process facilities, flare and utilities.

McDermott has been named design contractor for the plant, which is currently in the design stage. The FEED award is expected to be followed by the award of an EPC contract in 2023, said Adnoc.
