Wood is delivering concept and front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for nearly 2,000 miles of onshore low carbon pipelines in North America.

Ranked number one in Engineering News Record’s International Design Firms list six times in the past decade, Wood’s experts have designed five of the longest pipelines in the U.S. to date and are seeing a bonanza of new projects on the back of growing investment in clean energy infrastructure.

Katie Zimmerman, Decarbonization Director of the Americas at Wood, said: “Following the roll out of key government policies and incentives in both the US and Canada, we’re seeing a significant increase in the number of proposed hydrogen and carbon capture and storage projects. In order to meet market demands, the construction of new energy infrastructure projects and the ability to repurpose existing infrastructure will play a critical role in supporting the energy transition.

In addition to completing carbon capture and transportation studies for over 150 facilities globally, Wood is expanding the United States’ network of hydrogen pipelines by a third1 and will add nearly 1,000 miles to carbon capture pipeline networks across North America. Furthermore, at a moment in time when extreme heat has made the delivery of electricity to homes critical, Wood is continuing to grow critical networks for natural gas- working across the region to secure a low carbon energy system for North America.

Mark Netzel, Vice President of Upstream and Midstream at Wood, said: “It’s an exciting time to be part of a company that is known globally as an industry-leading energy infrastructure engineering firm. The ability to combine our domain knowledge with our decarbonization and digital expertise to advise, design and deliver the infrastructure necessary for the energy transition is what drives our success. At Wood, our work is never done- we continue to work with our clients to drive innovation and efficiencies to deliver trillions of cubic feet of hydrogen, natural gas, carbon dioxide and more to meet the needs of America’s energy consumers.”
