Wood Group Kenny to advise DECC on CCS

Peterhead Power Station was the original proposed site for such a scheme.
Peterhead Power Station

Wood Group Kenny (WGK) is set to provide technical advisory services for carbon capture storage (CCS) policies in a framework agreement with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

The four year agreement will see WGK support DECC in ensuring the UK CCS policies are underpinned by robust technical evidence and provide independent advice on the technical understanding of CCS.

The company’s previous experience in CCS includes the Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage project being developed by oil major Shell and Southern Energy (SSE).

Bob MacDonald, chief executive of Wood Group Kenny, said: “This contract award demonstrates how we apply our extensive engineering expertise to diverse markets. Utilising our knowledge in CO2 and CCS projects, we are positioned at the forefront of this sector and look forward to supporting DECC in this field.”

WGK will be one of six technical specialists advising DECC.

Under the technical specialist framework, engineering experts will be provided from across Wood Group specialities as required.

Specific areas of consideration within the scope of technical insight and design review will include: carbon capture, transport and storage; power generation solutions and novel technology, process and materials for CCS projects.

In 2014, WGK was awarded the front end engineering design (FEED) for the subsea and pipeline element of the Peterhead CCS project in Aberdeenshire.

It is the world’s first full-chain CCS project on a gas-fired power station, being developed by Shell, with strategic support from Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).
