New Kasawari carbon capture and storage project will be the first of its kind in Malaysia.
Global engineering company Worley is to provide detailed engineering design services for the Kasawari carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Malaysia.
The Kasawari development, set to be one of the world’s largest offshore CCS projects, aims to capture over three million tons of carbon dioxide per annum. Under the contract, awarded by Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering, Worley will provide design and engineering services for the platform, jacket, bridge and subsea pipeline.
Worley previously provided screening and concept selection and successfully completed the project’s front-end engineering and design phase, where their custom design solution reduced work hours on the project by 20%.
Work for the project will be carried out by the 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 and drive down costs.
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 138km pipeline to be injected into a depleted offshore gas reservoir at an existing wellhead platform.
Nicky Moir, chief operating officer at Rahnill Worley, said: “Driven by innovative solutions and harnessing digital technology, this project highlights the role traditional energy infrastructure can play in the energy transition as the industry looks to utilise CCS as a pathway to decarbonisation.
“The Kasawari project aims to play an important role in supporting our customers’ net emissions reduction targets while marking an important milestone for Malaysia’s sustainability journey. Furthering our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world.”
