DRAX Taps Worley for UK BECCS Project (Int'l. Report)
Date: 2021-12-22
In the UK, North Yorkshire-based biomass power producer DRAX, which plans to invest roughly £40 million in the first phase of its bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) project, reports the selection of engineering, project management and construction firm Worley to begin the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) phase early next year. Worley may also work on the subsequent design and build phases of the BECCS project, subject to contract.

The announcement follows DRAX's previously reported decision to partner with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group as its technology partner. With an effective negative emissions policy and investment framework from the government, BECCS could be deployed at DRAX as soon as 2027 -- delivering the UK's largest carbon capture project and permanently removing millions of tpy of CO2 from the atmosphere, according to DRAX.

Worley Tapped for Aemetis Carbon Zero Plant (Ind. Report)
Date: 2021-06-18
Following up on our 30th April report, Cupertino, California-based renewable natural gas (RNG), renewable fuel and biochemicals specialist Aemetis, Inc. reports it has awarded an engineering services contract to Worley for the Aemetis Carbon Zero renewable jet and diesel plant in Riverbank, California.

The Aemetis Carbon Zero renewable jet and diesel project is designed to "hydrotreat" renewable oils with hydrogen from orchard and forest wood waste. By utilizing hydroelectric electricity and carbon sequestration along with negative carbon intensity hydrogen, the Aemetis plant is expected to produce among the lowest carbon intensity renewable jet and diesel fuel in the world.

Worley is providing engineering to implement Axens renewable jet and diesel technology at the Riverbank site. Axens's technology hydrotreats a wide range of lipids to produce low-density and high cetane renewable diesel and renewable sulphur-free jet fuel. The Axens technology produces renewable jet and renewable diesel in an integrated process.

Worley Claims DAC Carbon Capture Contract (Int'l. Report)
Worley, Carbon Engineering
Date: 2021-02-24
In the Land Down Under, North Sydney-based engineering firm Worley has been awarded a direct air carbon capture (DAC) front-end engineering design contract by 1PointFive -- a joint venture between Oxy Low Carbon Ventures and Rusheen Capital. The front-end engineering design services will be led by Worley's Houston office, with support from its Global Integrated Delivery team in India.

The facility will be the first commercial-scale development using Squamish, British Columbia-based Carbon Engineering Ltd DAC technology. Each DAC unit is expected to extract 1 million metric tpy of atmospheric CO2.

Upon completion of the design, the two companies will form an alliance and move into the engineering, procurement and construction phase, with two more phases to follow.
