Technip Energies: carbon capture project in Texas
(CercleFinance.com) - Technip Energies announced on Thursday that it has been awarded a front-end engineering contract for a carbon capture project in Baytown, Texas, in a consortium of companies.
Under the terms of the agreement, the energy transition specialist will work with Shell Catalysts & Technologies and Zachry Group to capture CO2 emissions from the Baytown Energy Center (BTEC) thermal power plant and a combined cycle natural gas power plant (CCGT).
The three partners said that the FEED will use Shell's Cansolv CO2 capture technology.
The BTEC plant, operated by US power producer Calpine, is a natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant consisting of three combustion turbines and three heat recovery steam generators.
The project aims to capture two million tonnes of CO2 per year, or 95% of the emissions from the flue gases of both plants.
