Xodus to design Petronas’ first CCS facility

September 17, 2021

Doesn’t PETROS need to approve this?

Dateline 2021-08-17, The Chemical Engineer:

PETRONAS has awarded energy consultancy Xodus the conceptual engineering design contract for the state-energy firm’s first complete CCS project.

Xodus will conduct the feasibility studies and conceptual design for the CCS system for Kasawari, a sour gas field off the coast of Sarawak. The contract was won as part of Xodus’ contract with Petronas to provide engineering services for its Malaysian and international developments. Kasawari is scheduled to begin injecting captured CO2 in 2025, and has been billed by Malaysia’s state energy company as the world’s largest offshore CCS project. The field is estimated to have recoverable reserves of around 3 trn ft3 of gas.


Design Begins for Malaysian Carbon Capture and Storage Project

September 2, 2021

Dateline 2021-08-09, The Maritime Executive:

The development of the first complete Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project, offshore Malaysia, is getting underway for the oil and gas company Petronas. The conceptual engineering design contract for the project was awarded to the global energy consultancy Xodus. 

The Kasawari CCS project, off the coast of Sarawak, will comprise the capture and processing of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the sour gas field development, which will then be injected in a depleted gas field. This project is a key element of PETRONAS’ aspiration of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
