Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will provide technical advisory services for carbon capture and storage (CCS) policies, as well as potential projects across the UK, as part of a framework agreement with the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC).
The four year agreement will see WGK support DECC to ensure UK CCS energy policies are underpinned by robust technical evidence and provide independent advice on the technical understanding and review of CCS developments.
WGK's previous experience in CCS includes the Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage project being developed by Shell and Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, said: 'This contract award demonstrates how we apply our extensive engineering expertise to diverse markets. Utilising our knowledge in CO2 and CCS projects, we are positioned at the forefront of this sector and look forward to supporting DECC in this field.'
