Wood Wraps Up Preliminary Engineering For Innovative CCS Hub In Saudi Arabia - Carbon Herald

Wood, a leading player in the consulting and engineering industry, has finished the initial phase of front-end engineering and design (FEED) for Aramco‘s Accelerated Carbon Capture and Sequestration (ACCS) project in Saudi Arabia. 

This project is anticipated to become the biggest carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) center globally once it is completed. 

Wood has been at the forefront of providing innovative solutions for complex engineering projects, and their involvement in the ACCS project further solidifies their position as a leader in the field. With their expertise and experience, the company has now successfully wrapped up the preliminary engineering work for this groundbreaking initiative.

The front-end engineering design for this project was completed by a team of approximately 200 engineers from various divisions within the global Projects and Consulting departments of Wood.

Wood was responsible for designing the new dehydration and compression facilities as well as an extensive pipeline system, which includes a dense-phase CO2 pipeline spanning over 200 kilometers for the ACCS project. The goal of the ACCS project is to transport and store 9 million tonnes of emissions annually in onshore geological storage by 2027. 

Aramco, the Saudi Arabian Oil Group, is planning to store up to 14 million tonnes per year of CO2 equivalent by 2035 as part of the country’s goal to reach 44 MTPA through CCUS by the same year.

In an effort to reduce carbon emissions from its upstream operations, the initial phase of the ACCS project will focus on capturing emissions from Aramco gas plant facilities near Jubail on the Saudi Arabian east coast, as well as from external sources. The ambitious ACCS project, expected to be the largest of its kind globally, is set to become the leading carbon capture and sequestration hub once completed.  

With the success of the preliminary engineering phase, Wood has set the stage for the development of a groundbreaking CCS center that will have far-reaching implications for the global effort to reduce carbon emissions.
