Worley selected to provide design services for Bayou Bend CCS project

| By Mary Bailey

Worley Ltd. (North Sydney, Australia) has been selected to design and evaluate CO2 gathering, handling and sequestration facilities located along the Gulf Coast in Southeast Texas.

Bayou Bend CCS LLC is a joint venture owned by Chevron, Equinor, and TotalEnergies to develop a carbon capture and storage facility in Southeast Texas.

The project has the potential to reduce emissions from regional industrial facilities by sequestering CO2 safely and permanently underground. It includes a CO2 storage footprint of nearly 140,000 acres of pore space.

Worley’s teams will carry out the design and evaluation scope of work for the project from the company’s Houston office, with support from Global Integrated Delivery teams in India.

“The Gulf Coast has one of the heaviest concentrations of CO2 emissions in the U.S., making this project pivotal for helping hard-to-abate industries, such as refining, cement, steel, chemicals, and manufacturing, to meet their climate goals. Carbon sequestration along the Gulf Coast helps to support a broader national effort to reduce carbon emissions,” said Mark Trueman, Group President, Americas.

“We’re committed to a strong partnership with Bayou Bend, drawing on our global CCUS knowledge and project execution experience. Innovative projects like Bayou Bend will potentially enable CCS at scale and help more companies achieve their net zero goals, supporting our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world.”
