Worley is Expanding CCS Capabilities in Malaysia
Worley is providing 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 3 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per annum.
Under the contract, awarded by Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering, Worley is providing design and engineering services for the platform, jacket, bridge and subsea pipeline.
We previously provided screening and concept selection and successfully completed the project's front-end engineering and design phase for the project, where our custom design solution reduced work hours on the project by 20 percent.
Work for the project will be carried out by our 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 to our customers and drive down costs.
The first of its kind for Malaysia
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 138 km pipeline to be injected into a depleted offshore gas reservoir at an existing wellhead platform.
“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 utilize CCS as a pathway to decarbonization,” says Nicky Moir, Chief Operating Officer at Rahnill Worley.
“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.”
