KBR announced it has been awarded the Concept and front-end-engineering-and-design (FEED) contract by Statoil for its ground-breaking Northern Lights project to develop an onshore carbon dioxide storage terminal in Norway.
The terminal is a key component of the carbon capture and storage demonstration project being undertaken by Gassnova, where Statoil, in partnership with Shell and Total, is responsible for transport and storage. The work will be performed by KBR in conjunction with its Granherne subsidiary. In addition to the CO2 storage terminal, the engineering scope will address the import jetty topsides, the CO2 reinjection lines, and associated utilities.
The first phase of this project will provide storage for up to 1.5 million t of CO2 per year. CO2 captured from onshore industrial plants in Eastern Norway will be transported by ship to the onshore terminal. The project will allow for further expansion to receive additional CO2 volumes, with the aim of stimulating new commercial carbon capture projects in Norway, Europe, and other countries around the world.
