At Amec Foster Wheeler we are able to transfer and integrate our collective capabilities from our onshore and offshore gas business, our environment, health and safety consultancy service, involvement with new technologies and pipeline expertise directly into the expanding world of carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Our history of carbon capture (utilisation) and storage projects spans the entire technology chain of this emerging sector. We provide services to all elements of capture, transport and storage.
Our delivery of amine treatment and gasification units (capture), compression and pipelines (transport) and enhanced oil recovery (storage) provides us with a wide range of experience.
Our work on CCS has ranged from the FEED for BP’s DF-1 project in Peterhead to feasibility studies for Shell and SSE’s Peterhead project. We delivered substantial parts of the FEED studies for Longannet, Don Valley, Eon Kingsnorth and many others. We continue that work with projects for the IEA and ETI, Tees Valley Unlimited on Industrial CCS and for MASDAR where our technical expertise was used to guide the EPC as part of the clients PMC team. Our services range from concept and consultancy services, across all elements of a CCS project up to full project management and engineering, procurement and construction or PMC.
We also work with academic and industrial institutions to support the development of the industry. This includes working with the CCSA, Energy Institute, the UK’s Cost Reduction Task Force and supporting academic work and projects. James Watt one of our CCS specialists also serves on the board of the UK CCS Research Centre, the organisation that innovates, leads and coordinates research activities on CCS in the UK. We are applying our knowledge and experience to guide the industry to deployment.
Amec Foster Wheeler is at the forefront of developing CCS technology.
