Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. awarded a conceptual engineering design contract to Xodus for the Kasawari carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, offshore Malaysia. This will be Petronas’ first complete CCS project.
The project will comprise capture and processing of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the sour gas field development, which will then be injected into a depleted gas field. This project is a key element of Petronas’ goal to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The work with Petronas was secured as part of Xodus’ contract to provide engineering services for the operator’s Malaysian and international developments. Under the agreement, Xodus is delivering feasibility studies and conceptual design.
Kasawari’s offshore central processing platform—which will produce from five subsea wells—should reach startup in first-quarter 2023. Its gas purification plant, which will remove CO2 from the gas stream, will be one of largest offshore gas treatment systems in the world (OGJ Online, Jul. 27, 2020).
