Petrofac named contractor for British CCS and hydrogen project
10 June, 2020
A carbon capture and storage (CCS) and hydrogen production project in the UK has named Petrofac to support front-end engineering design and concept select work.
The Acorn project, located at St Fergus gas terminal near Peterhead, Scotland, holds the first UK CO2 appraisal and storage license to be awarded by the Oil & Gas Authority.
Supported by energy firms Shell, Total and Chrysaor, the project has secured funding from the EU, and the UK and Scottish governments.
The facility will transform North Sea natural gas into clean hydrogen, with CO2 emissions safely mitigated through the Acorn CCS infrastructure.
