Global engineering, procurement, construction and project management company Samsung Engineering has confirmed the award of a $680 million engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract for the onshore gas plant for Shell’s Rosmari-Marjoram project in Malaysia.

The EPCC contract, which was formally awarded on Tuesday, will see Samsung’s workscope executed in two phases – a limited scope before Shell takes the final investment decision on Rosmari-Marjoram with the majority of the work being performed after project sanction.

Upstream had reported on 30 March that Samsung was the front-runner for this Rosmari-Marjoram prize, beating South Korean compatriot Hyundai Heavy Industries after both players had competed in a dual front-end engineering and design competition.
