Summary

The Shell UK Ltd. (Shell) and Scottish and Southern Energy plc (SSE) are planning to undertake the construction of a new gas carbon capture and storage plant at Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, the UK.

The project involves the addition of a new gas carbon capture and storage plant with a capacity of 10 million tonnes of carbon a year (MTPA) to one (of three) of the Peterhead plant’s existing 385MW combined-cycle gas turbines.

The project includes the construction of a processing unit, a storage unit, a substation, a subsea pipeline and other related facilities, and the installation of transformers.

In November 2011, SSE and Shell entered into a joint development agreement to enable the Peterhead CCS Project to accelerate a program of pre-FEED studies.

In October 2012, the UK Government selected Peterhead as one of four successful projects shortlisted to continue to the next stage of its CCS Commercialisation Programme.

In November 2012, the Government and Industry CCS Cost Reduction Task Force reported that gas and coal power stations equipped with CCS have clear potential to be cost competitive with other forms of low-carbon power generation.

In March 2013, the UK Government announces the Peterhead CCS Project as one of two preferred bidders eligible for capital funding available under their CCS Commercialisation Programme to undertake FEED studies.

In December 2013, the project obtained a Carbon Storage License from DECC.

In February 2014, Shell and SSE signed an agreement with State for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) for the FEED study.

In March 2014, Technip S.A was awarded a contract to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) for the project. The scope of the contract covers a grassroots carbon capture and compression plant and modifications to an existing combined cycle gas turbine power plant.

On October 16, 2014, Wood Group Kenny was appointed as a FEED contractor for the subsea and pipeline element of the project. The scope of the contract covers developing a landfall solution at the Peterhead Power Station, design of a new carbon dioxide (CO2) export pipeline from Peterhead Power Station to a subsea tie-in with the existing Goldeneye pipeline, and, a new subsea intervention valve (SSIV), including controls system and tie-in spools.

In March 2015, developers submitted its planning application and Onshore Environmental Statement to the Aberdeenshire Council.

In May 2015, Mott Macdonald was appointed as the technical consultant for the FEED study phase.

In June 2015, Shell and SSE secured approvals from the Aberdeenshire Council.

On November 25, 2015, the UK Government cancelled US$1570 million Competition six months before it was to be awarded. Chancellor Osborne cancelled the US$1,108 million grant for the development.

Amec Foster Wheeler has been appointed as FEED contractor, Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants Ltd, Environmental Resources Management as Environmental consultant.

In November 2016, Mott MacDonald has signed an enterprise framework agreement with Shell to provide enabling infrastructure works (EIW).

Planning activities are underway.
