Technip awarded FEED contract for first commercial CCS project
PARIS -- Technip has been awarded a contract by Shell UK Limited to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) for the onshore elements of the Peterhead Gas Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) demonstration project in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
The project is designed to capture, compress and transport by pipeline one million tons a year of carbon dioxide to an offshore gas reservoir for long-term storage beneath the North Sea.
The FEED scope includes a grassroots carbon capture and compression plant and modifications to an existing combined cycle gas turbine power plant.
Technip’s operating center in Milton Keynes, UK, which executed a pre-FEED study for the Peterhead CCS project about 18 months ago, will execute the FEED for this next phase. This office serves as a center of excellence for the development of end-to-end solutions for carbon capture and sequestration projects.
