Worley – a global provider of professional services in the energy, chemicals, and resources sectors, has won the front-end engineering and design (FEED) services contract for Qatargas’ carbon capture and sequestration project in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
The company’s teams in Australia and Qatar will develop the FEED study and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) scope of work, with the contract set for completion in 2024. The financial terms of Worley’s contract were not disclosed.
The goal of the sequestration facility, once completed, will be to capture 4.3 million metric tons per annum of CO2, helping to further reduce Qatargas’ environmental impact across the liquefied natural gas value chain by reducing emissions from its seven trains at QG North and three LNG trains at QG South. Carbon dioxide will be captured from the trains, compressed and injected into new injection wells. New compression trains and pipelines will need to be installed after the FEED work is completed.
According to Worley, the project team will aim to prove the pre-FEED concept by modeling the carbon capture process. This technical approach aims to further instill confidence to expand the CO2 sequestration technology in the future to include the remaining trains at Qatargas South and North, as per Worley.
“We’ve worked alongside Qatargas 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 towards our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world,” said Nawar Chapman, Worley’s country manager Qatar & Kuwait.
