Worley has announced that it will provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for QatarEnergy LNG’s groundbreaking CO2 sequestration project in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
Worley will develop the FEED study and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) scope of work. The project will be carried out by the company’s team in Qatar and Australia and is set for completion in 2024.
Once completed the sequestration facility will be capable of capturing 4.3 million tons of CO2 every year. This will help to further reduce QatarEnergy LNG’s environmental impact across the LNG value chain by reducing emissions from its seven LNG trains at QG North and three LNG trains at QG South.
CO2 will be captured from the trains, compressed, and injected into the new injection wells. New compression trains and pipelines need to be installed after FEED is completed.
“To support the decarbonization efforts in Qatar’s transport industry, our project team will leverage the expertise from our CCUS centers of excellence. Through meticulous modeling of the CO2 capture process, we aim to validate the pre-FEED concept and pave the way for future expansion of this cutting-edge sequestration technology to include the remaining trains at QatarEnergy LNG South and North,” Worley stated in a press release on Tuesday.
Nawar Chapman, Country Manager for Qatar & Kuwait, expressed his enthusiasm for this project, stating : “We’ve worked alongside QatarEnergy LNG for over a decade and this project further supports Qatar on its sustainability journey. This also presents an opportunity to use our in-depth knowledge of the region and global expertise in delivering FEED services to the CCUS sector to drive project delivery. As we work toward our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world.”
