Carbon Clean awarded FEED contract for Acorn CCS project


Carbon Clean has been contracted to carry out the Front End Engineering Desgin (FEED) services for the Acorn carbon capture plant at St Fergus, Scotland, which could remove at least half of the carbon emissions set out in the UK Gov’s 10-point plan for a green industrial revolutions by 2030.

Project partners Storegga, through its wholly owned subsidiary Pale Blue Dot Energy, Shell, and Harbour Energy on Thursday (14th July) announced Carbon Clean’s involvement in the project as part of an important step forward. It is hoped that the facility will be operational by mid-2020s.

Once operational, the captured carbon dioxide (CO2), together with CO2 volumes from other emitters, will be transported and permanently stored offshore, with annual storage volumes anticipated to grow to 5-10Mt/yr of CO2 by 2030.

Commenting on the projects latest development, Nick Cooper, CEO of Storegga, said, “This contract award is an important milestone for the Acorn CCS Project. It is excellent working with a group as innovative as Carbon Clean.”
