HOUSTON, US: KBR Inc (KBR) has been awarded a concept and FEED (front-end engineering design) contract by Statoil ASA for their ground-breaking Northern Lights project, to develop an onshore carbon dioxide (CO2) storage terminal in Norway.

The terminal is a key component of the carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration project being undertaken by Gassnova, where Statoil, in partnership with Shell and Total, are responsible for transport and storage.

The work will be performed by KBR in conjunction with its Granherne subsidiary.  In addition to the CO2 storage terminal, the engineering scope will address the import jetty topsides, the CO2 re-injection lines and associated utilities.

Construction of the full-scale project including the onshore terminal is subject to the Norwegian parliament making a positive investment decision, scheduled for 2019.

The first phase of this project will provide storage for up to 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. CO2 captured from onshore industrial plants in Eastern Norway, will be transported by ship to the onshore terminal. The project will allow for further expansion to receive additional CO2 volumes, with the aim of stimulating new commercial carbon capture projects in Norway, Europe and other countries around the world.

"We are excited to be part of this significant and ground-breaking project and to continue our long-standing and valued relationship with Statoil. KBR is very supportive of continuing the spirit of innovation in CCS," said Jay Ibrahim, president, EMEA, KBR.
