Shell UK lets contract for Peterhead CCS project

Shell UK Ltd. has let a front-end engineering and design contract to Technip SA 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 1 million tonnes/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.

The Peterhead CCS project was chosen in 2013 as one of two CCS demonstration projects to progress to the next stage of the UK government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change CCS competition.

Shell is developing the Peterhead CCS project with strategic support from SSE Generation Ltd., owner and operator of the Peterhead Power Station.
