Technip Energies and Saulsbury Industries awarded EPC contract for carbon capture and storage at ExxonMobil LaBarge, Wyoming, US facility
Technip Energies, in consortium with Saulsbury Industries, has been awarded a contract for the EPC to expand the carbon capture and storage (CCS) at ExxonMobil’s LaBarge, Wyoming facility.
The LaBarge plant has already captured more CO2 than any other facility in the world. The plant has capacity to capture more than 6 MM mtons per year, and this expansion project will enable the capture of more than one million additional metric tons of CO2 per year.
The expansion will consist of a modification of the existing gas treatment facility to increase the carbon capture capacity and the installation of pipeline to transport the CO2 to the reservoir where it will be stored. Technip Energies will be responsible for the engineering and procurement services, while Saulsbury Industries will perform construction and the pipeline installation.
Laure Mandrou, Senior Vice President Carbon-Free Solutions of Technip Energies, commented: “We are very pleased to be working with ExxonMobil to expand the CCS at LaBarge, the world’s largest carbon capture facility. We are committed to advancing the energy transition and this project will be a hallmark in reducing carbon emissions.”
Dan Ammann, President of ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions, stated: “The expansion of carbon capture and storage capacity at LaBarge underscores ExxonMobil’s commitment to advancing lower-emissions technologies with projects around the world. Carbon capture and storage is necessary to help meet society’s net-zero goals and, with the right policies in place, the technology can be broadly deployed immediately.”
Dennis Chismar, Senior Vice President of Saulsbury Industries, stated: “We are pleased to be collaborating with Technip Energies and supporting this exciting project with ExxonMobil. Our commitment to assisting in the reduction of carbon emissions and being a key contributor to the LaBarge expansion project marks a proud and historic moment for Saulsbury.”
The gas processing/LNG sector is investing in new technologies to mitigate carbon emissions from both operations and its supply chain.
Industry Focus: Maximizing the performance of your ETRM system
-Teresa Kroh, Brad York
Energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems are vital for the support of business processes associated with trading energy commodities such as crude oil, refined products, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and electric power, as well as facilitating the movement and delivery of those energy commodities and associated risk management activities.
-Oz Rodriguez, Catriona Penman
More than 100 participating countries at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) signed the Global Methane Pledge, in which they agreed to take action to reduce methane emissions at least 30% by 2030 vs. 2020 levels.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
