Technip Energies and Turner Industries win ExxonMobil CCUS EPC Louisiana contract

Technip Energies and Turner Industries have been awarded an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contract by ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions Onshore Storage.

The contract covers the delivery of a Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage (CCUS) system that could condition, compress, and transport, for eventual storage, up to 800,000 metric tonnes per year of CO2 from a manufacturing plant located in Convent, Louisiana, and owned by Nucor Corporation, North America’s largest steel producer and recycler.

Technip Energies will oversee the engineering and procurement while Turner Industries will be responsible for construction.

The Nucor manufacturing site produces direct reduced iron (DRI), a raw material that is mixed with recycled scrap at Nucor steel mills, which make higher grades of steel products, including automobile parts, household appliances, and tools and machinery.

The CCUS system is designed to enable the Nucor facility to produce DRI with up to 80% less greenhouse gas emissions than traditional blast furnace iron production.

Christophe Malaurie, SVP Decarbonisation Solutions of Technip Energies, said, “By supporting ExxonMobil’s planned emissions reduction project at the Nucor direct reduced iron plant, together with our partner Turner Industries, we are directly contributing to emissions reductions of hard-to-abate industries.”

Mark Brittain, President of Construction for Turner Industries, said, “This aligns with our commitment to delivering innovative solutions in the carbon capture and storage space and advancing sustainable industrial processes.”

According to ExxonMobil’s website, the company will also store up to 2 million metric tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of CO2 from CF Industries’ manufacturing site in Donaldsonville. Start-up is scheduled early next year. CF Industries expects to market up to 1.7 million MT of blue ammonia annually.

In April last year, Linde signed a long-term agreement with ExxonMobil for the offtake of CO2 associated with Linde’s hydrogen production in Beaumont, Texas, which is also expected to launch next year. ExxonMobil will transport and permanently store up to 2.2 million MT of CO2 each year.
