KBR selected by JX Nippon for carbon-capture feasibility study

By Mary Page Bailey |

KBR, Inc. (Houston) announced  that it has been awarded a Master Service Agreement (MSA) and Feasibility Study by JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp. (Tokyo, Japan)

Building on KBR’s strong and successful portfolio in this area, the study will assess options for Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS), alongside blue hydrogen production relating to oil and gas fields in South East Asia, a region where JX Nippon continues to expand on its global track record of CCS/CCUS projects.

KBR will provide technical consultancy services in relation to developing concepts and technology recommendations for the capture of CO2, reinjection, and production of blue (i.e. carbon free) hydrogen.

KBR will also evaluate the feasibility of conversion and transport of hydrogen in other forms for sale into the market, including liquified cryogenic hydrogen, liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC), ammonia, and methanol (utilizing CO2).

This project will be led primarily from KBR’s consulting hub in Singapore, leveraging on the specialist skills of its wider strategic and advisory consulting and engineering groups. This includes a world leading cryogenic hydrogen team which works with NASA extensively on the storage, training and safe handling of hydrogen at extreme temperatures.

“We are excited to be a part of this significant project which is indicative of the global transition to more sustainable energy supplies and our ambition to grow and maintain a substantial presence in Asia Pacific”, said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Energy Solutions.

“Being given the opportunity to work on this study is indicative of KBR’s capabilities and skillsets across complex industrial assets and demonstrates our strategic commitment to sustainability, decarbonization, and the development of blue/green hydrogen as both the clean energy for the future, and foundation of a green chemical and product supply chain.”

Other major carbon capture projects have been announced in recent months, including by Aker Solutions, Chevron Eni, Equinor and more
