Global Engineering Consultancy Xodus has been awarded the conceptual engineering design contract for PETRONAS’ first complete Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project offshore Malaysia. The Kasawari CCS project off the coast of Sarawak will comprise the capture and processing of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the sour gas field development, which will then be injected into a depleted gas field.
According to Xodus, this CCS project is a key element towards boosting global transition to net-zero carbon emissions aspiration by 2050. Xodus has already participated in all aspects of CCS including designing and operating systems to capture, process, transport, inject and store CO2.
“This is a significant step for PETRONAS and Malaysia and aligns with our own ethos of delivering a responsible energy future. The award of this contract is a demonstration of the success of our expansion and recognition of our growing footprint across the APAC region.”Simon Allison, Regional Director for Xodus Asia Pacific
The Kasawari CCS project is planned to be commissioned by the end of 2025 and is expected to reduce the volume of CO₂ emitted via flaring by 76 million metric tonnes, a monumental step to accelerate decarbonisation efforts.
