EPC Technip Energies, Saulsbury Win Contract for Expanding CCS at Exxon Mobil’s Facility
Exxon Mobil has selected Technip Energies and Saulsbury to carry out Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) at its La Barge, Wyoming facility in order to expand the unit’s carbon capture and storage (CCS). On completion, the plant is expected to capture more than seven million metric tons of CO2 annually.
Paris/France – Technip Energies, in Consortium with Saulsbury Industries, has been awarded a contract for the EPC to expand the carbon capture and storage (CCS) at Exxon Mobil’s La Barge, Wyoming facility. The La Barge plant has already captured more CO2 than any other facility in the world. The plant has the capacity to capture more than 6 million metric tons 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.
