Summit Carbon Solutions (Summit) recently announced its plans to develop a new carbon dioxide (CO2) capture, transportation, and sequestration project, which will connect multiple sources throughout Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota.
The project includes a gathering and transmission pipeline system to support capture and permanent storage of up to 10 million tons of CO2 annually, making it the largest CCS project in the world.
As an industry leader in both CO2 handling design and pipeline project execution, Wood has been engaged by Summit to perform pre-FEED (Front End Engineering and Design) analysis on the CO2 pipeline network. Wood will support Summit with concept selection activities for the pipeline system, including route development, hydraulics, preliminary engineering, cost estimating, and an initial decarbonisation SCORE assessment.
“We have a strong history of delivering CO2 handling and transportation projects and will combine this service-specific expertise with our pipeline project strength to execute this pre-FEED,” said Mark Netzel, Senior Vice President of Onshore Upstream/Midstream & Field Services. “At Wood, we are prioritising the development of our decarbonisation solutions and will leverage best practices to reduce the overall carbon footprint of this project.”
