QatarEnergy LNG (formerly Qatargas) has let a FEED contract to Worley for a CO2 sequestration project in Ras Laffan, Qatar, the service company said in a release Sept. 25.
Worley will develop the FEED study and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) scope of work aimed at reducing emissions from Qatar Energy LNG's seven LNG trains at QG North and three LNG trains at QG South. CO2 will be captured from the trains, compressed, and injected into new injection wells.
New compression trains and pipelines need to be installed after FEED is completed, Worley said in a release Sept. 25.
The project team aims to prove the pre-FEED concept by modeling the CO2 capture process, which could lead to expansion of the CO2 sequestration technology in the future to include the remaining trains at QatarEnergy LNG South and North, Worley continued.
The project will be carried out by teams in Qatar and Australia and is set for completion in 2024. Once completed, the sequestration infrastructure is expected to be capable of capturing 4.3 million tonnes/year (tpy) of CO2.
