Wood finishes preliminary engineering for CCS hub in Saudi Arabia

Riyadh - Sharikat Mubasher: Wood, the global leader in consulting and engineering, completed the front-end engineering and design (FEED) scope for the first phase of Aramco’s Accelerated Carbon Capture and Sequestration (ACCS) project in Saudi Arabia, the company announced in a press release.

The project is expected to be the largest carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) hub in the world.

The first phase of the ACCS project is planned to capture carbon emissions from Aramco gas plant facilities near Jubail as well as from third-party emitters.

Wood designed the greenfield dehydration and compression facilities and the large pipeline network, including a 200-kilometer dense-phase CO2 pipeline for the ACCS project.

Craig Shanaghey, Executive President of Projects at Wood, said: “We are proud to be at the forefront of designing the future of energy by leveraging our 20 years of experience in carbon capture engineering to bring the ACCS project to life, supporting Aramco as our long-term client on its energy security and transition ambitions.

The ACCS project aims to transport 9 million tons per annum (MTPA) of emissions and sequester it within onshore geological storage by 2027.
