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 first full-chain CCS project in the world 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. Eighty 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.”
