Calpine Texas CCUS awards major FEED study for carbon capture work


Shell Catalysts & Technology has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Calpine Texas CCUS for a post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture facility – and it’s believed to be one of the largest CO2 capture FEED studies ever awarded.

To be based on Shell’s Cansolv CO2 technology for the natural gas combined cycle power plant at Calpine Deer Park Energy Centre in Texas, US, the plant will capture approximately five million tonnes of CO2 annually. 

Under the inked agreement, the FEED study will be supported by Technip Energies on behalf of Shell Catalysts & Technology. 

On the news, Andy Gosse, President of Shell Catalysts & Technologies, said, “We are very proud to work with Calpine as a partner for this pioneering project. Shell’s Cansolv CO2 capture technology has been in operation since 2013, including in a large-scale, commercial, low-pressure application at SaskPower in Canada, where it is designed to capture up to one million tonnes of CO2 annually.
