Baker Hughes to supply key technology for ‘world’s largest’ offshore CCS project

Energy technology company Baker Hughes will supply state-of-the-art technology for the Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd.’s Kasawari offshore carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Sarak, Malaysia – a project expected to be the world’s largest offshore CCS facility).

Having been awarded the contract to be booked in the fourth quarter of 2022 by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE), US-based Baker Hughes will provide carbon dioxide (CO2) compression equipment to the project, which Petronas states will have capacity to reduce CO2 emissions by 3.3 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).

According to Baker Hughes, the lightweight technology features a low carbon footprint and a power density which allows for larger flows per unit.

The compressors will be used to enable the transportation and reinjection of the CO2 separated from natural gas into a depleted offshore field via a subsea pipeline, stated the company.

By delivering two trains of low-pressure booster compressors, Baker Hughes plan to use membrane technology to separation
