KBR Wins Carbon Capture Contract in Asia
Engineering firm KBR has been awarded a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) master services contract by JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corporation (JX Nippon), KBR said May 13 in a statement.
The study will assess options for CCS alongside blue hydrogen production relating to JX Nippon's oil and gas fields in southeast Asia. KBR said it will provide technical consultancy services in relation to developing concepts and technology recommendations for the capture of CO2, reinjection, and production of blue, or carbon-free, hydrogen.
KBR will also evaluate the feasibility of conversion and transport of hydrogen in other forms for sale into the market, including liquefied cryogenic hydrogen, liquid organic hydrogen carrier, ammonia, and methanol, it said. This project will be led primarily by KBR’s consultants in Singapore.
