ExxonMobil unit wins contract for Louisiana CCS project

ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions Onshore Storage LLC has awarded a contract to Technip Energies, in a consortium with Turner Industries, for a carbon capture and sequestration project in Louisiana.

The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract covers the ExxonMobil unit’s plans to deliver a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) system that could condition, compress and transport for eventual storage up to 800,000 metric tons of CO2 per year from a manufacturing facility in Convent, La. owned by Nucor Corp., North America’s largest steel producer and recycler (OGJ Online, June 1, 2023).

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

The plant will produce direct reduced iron (DRI), a raw material that is blended with recycled scrap at Nucor’s steel mills to produce higher-grade steel products. The CCUS system is designed to enable the site to produce DRI with up to 80% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional blast furnace iron production.

ExxonMobil selected Technip Energies to perform the front-end engineering design (FEED) and worked with Turner Industries to solidify the EPC execution approach.
