Worley Wins Contract For US Gas-To-Liquids Project With CCS

Worley Wins Contract For US Gas-To-Liquids Project With CCS - Carbon Herald

Australian engineering firm Worley has secured the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for Cerilon’s innovative gas-to-liquids (GTL) project in North Dakota.

Cerilon‘s facility will be the first of its kind globally to utilize large-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology. This cutting-edge approach aims to minimize the project’s environmental footprint. 

The GTL plant will transform natural gas into approximately 24,000 barrels daily of high-quality synthetic products, including advanced lubricants, ultra-low sulfur diesel, and naphtha. 

Notably, the project will establish a domestic source for Group III+ base oils, which are currently primarily imported.

Worley plans to leverage a standardized design approach for this project, enabling efficient replication in the future. 

The company considers this contract “sustainable work” according to its internal classification system.

Worley has already completed the preliminary engineering phase (pre-FEED) for the GTL project. 

This new agreement signifies the official start of the FEED stage. The engineering services will be delivered from Worley’s Calgary office, Canada, with additional support from their global network, including integrated delivery teams. 

“We look forward to continuing to support Cerilon as they produce lower carbon products and energy, consistent with our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world,” commented Chris Ashton, CEO of Worley.

This marks Worley’s second recent project win. In addition to the US GTL project, Worley also secured a contract to bolster natural gas infrastructure in Mexico.

This project involves expanding Engie’s Energia Mayakan pipeline located in the Yucatan peninsula. The expansion aims to significantly boost the pipeline’s capacity, from 250 million cubic feet of gas per day to 567 MMcfd. 

This increase is intended to address the rising demand for natural gas for power generation and general use within the region.

Worley was chosen as the owner’s engineer for this project based on their successful completion of the FEED (front-end engineering and design) phase. 

The specific services Worley will provide are classified as “transitional work” under their sustainability framework.
