Technip Energies, in consortium with Saulsbury Industries, has been awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) to expand the carbon capture and storage (CCS) at ExxonMobil’s LaBarge, Wyoming facility in the US.
The LaBarge plant has already captured more CO2 than any other facility in the world. The plant has capacity to capture more than 6 million tpy, and this expansion project will enable the capture of more than an additional 1 million tpy of CO2.
The expansion will consist of a modification of the existing gas treatment facility to increase the carbon capture capacity and the installation of pipeline to transport the CO2 to the reservoir where it will be stored.
Technip Energies will be responsible for the engineering and procurement services, while Saulsbury Industries will perform construction and the pipeline installation.
Laure Mandrou, senior vice president carbon-free solutions of Technip Energies, commented: “We are very pleased to be working with ExxonMobil to expand the CCS at LaBarge, the world’s largest carbon capture facility. We are committed to advancing the energy transition and this project will be a hallmark in reducing carbon emissions.”
Dan Ammann, president of ExxonMobil low carbon solutions, stated: “The expansion of carbon capture and storage capacity at LaBarge underscores ExxonMobil’s commitment to advancing lower-emissions technologies with projects around the world. Carbon capture and storage is necessary to help meet society’s net-zero goals and, with the right policies in place, the technology can be broadly deployed immediately.”
Dennis Chismar, senior vice president of Saulsbury Industries, stated: “We are pleased to be collaborating with Technip Energies and supporting this exciting project with ExxonMobil. Our commitment to assisting in the reduction of carbon emissions and being a key contributor to the LaBarge expansion project marks a proud and historic moment for Saulsbury.”
