Wood Group bags Peterhead CCS FEED contract

Wood Group Kenny has been awarded the front end engineering design (FEED) for the subsea and pipeline element of the Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project in Aberdeenshire.

The project, the world’s first full-chain CCS project on a gas-fired power station, is being developed by Shell, with strategic support from Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).

The scope of the six-month contract includes: developing a landfall solution at the Peterhead Power Station; design of a new carbon dioxide (CO2) export pipeline from Peterhead Power Station to a subsea tie-in with the existing Goldeneye pipeline; and, a new subsea intervention valve (SSIV), including controls system and tie-in spools.

A total of 80 engineers will support the project from Wood Group Kenny offices in Aberdeen and London.

Wood Group Kenny Regional Director Bob MacDonald said: “We are honoured to be involved in this unique project in the North Sea. Using our 30 years of subsea infrastructure design, Wood Group Kenny is well placed to deliver high-quality, cost-effective solutions that will help achieve the targets of the UK Government.”

Business, Enterprise & Energy Minister Matthew Hancock said: “We are leading the way in Europe in developing this innovative low-carbon technology. Testing the commercial feasibility of Carbon Capture Storage is an important step.

“So far, more than 20 Front End Engineering and Design subcontracts have been awarded supporting both the Peterhead and White Rose CCS Commercialisation Programme projects. Combined, these projects if successful could support jobs during construction and generate enough clean electricity for over one million homes upon completion.”

The Peterhead CCS project forms a significant part of the UK Government’s CCS roadmap. The development of cost-effective technology and infrastructure is the only way to collect the CO2 from heavy industry and achieve decarbonisation in the UK’s power and industrial sectors, WGK noted in the release.
