Australian engineering company Worley has been awarded a contract by Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering to provide engineering design services for Petronas’ mega carbon capture and storage (CCS) project offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.
The Kasawari development, set to be one of the world’s largest offshore CCS projects, aims to capture over 3 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per annum. Under the contract, Worley will provide design and engineering services for the platform, jacket, bridge, and subsea pipeline.
Worley previously provided screening and concept selection and completed the project’s front-end engineering and design phase for the project, where the company’s design solution reduced work hours on the project by 20%.
The new CCS platform, the first of its kind in Malaysia, will be located next to the Kasawari Central Processing Facility and linked via a bridge. The CO2 will be compressed and transported by a 138 km pipeline to be injected into a depleted offshore gas reservoir at an existing wellhead platform.
Work for the project will be carried out by Ranhill Worley teams in Malaysia, with close support from wider Worley, Advisian and Intecsea teams in Australia and Singapore. Designs will be enhanced using digitally driven systems and tools to enhance commercial viability to our customers and drive down costs.
