Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd.’s Kasawari offshore carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project gained a supplier through Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn. Bhd. The company—contracted by Petronas for engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning services—awarded a supply contract to Baker Hughes Inc. to for CO2 compression equipment for the 3.3-million tonne/year CCS project at 3.2-tcf Kasawari sour gas field in Block SK316 offshore Sarawak, Malaysia (OGJ Online, Nov. 30, 2022).
Baker Hughes will deliver two trains of low-pressure booster compressors to remove CO2 with membrane separation technology, as well as two trains for reinjecting separated CO2 into a dedicated storage site. The trains, which will be fitted with PGT25+ and PGT25 gas turbines with dry low emission technology, offer fuel efficiency, reduced nitrogen oxides emissions, and reduced footprint enabled by the compressors’ casing, the provider said.
