What you can learn in Part Two

From research and feasibility studies to project execution and operations, we understand the crucial balance between conventional and low carbon operations and are supporting clients all over the world on their pathway to net zero.

What you’ll learn:

  • Effective evaluation criteria for repurposing of existing pipelines for carbon capture, utilisation and storage
  • Considerations of whether the production of green hydrogen should be onshore or offshore
  • Digital plants of the future
  • Roadmap to decarbonised chemicals
  • New hazards to consider in low carbon projects
  • Deployment of a thermal power with carbon capture and storage design and its application for future projects

Each session will comprise of a 20-minute presentation followed by a Q&A.

The event programme

Wednesday 18th May 2022 | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | Structured Methodology for Repurposing Pipelines for CCUS Service
Wednesday 18th May 2022, 14.30 – 15.00pm BST

The evaluation of repurposing of infrastructure is a requirement of NTSA Stewardship Expectations and is a key enabler for CCUS, providing multiple benefits and risks reduction.

In this session a structured methodology will be presented which provides assurance of repurposing of hydrocarbon pipelines.  The methodology is developed upon a roadmap which logically sets out the required activities and data within each element and identifies the interdependencies between tasks.

Presented by:

  • Ian Matheson, Subsea & Pipeline Technical Authority, Kent

Wednesday 25th May | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | Green hydrogen – offshore or onshore?
Wednesday 25th May 14.30 – 15.00pm BST

Green hydrogen, made from renewable electrons, is a growing area of focus in decarbonisation. Offshore wind is a suitable renewable power source. But should the facilities used to produce this green hydrogen be located offshore or onshore?

In this presentation, we will discuss how project drivers such as process configurations, location factors and economic considerations influence the preferred location of green hydrogen production: offshore or offshore.

Presented by:

  • Deirdre Diamond, Principle Process Engineer, Kent
  • Luigi Crolla, Principal Process Engineer, SME – Low Carbon Technologies, Kent

Wednesday 1st June | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | How to design and deliver the sustainable plant of the future
Wednesday 1st June 14.30 – 15.00pm BST

Today, the demand for energy and rising costs combined with growing momentum to transition to a low carbon future, accelerates the need for energy companies to ‘supercharge’ their digital agendas.

This presentation will explore how Owner Operators will achieve sustainable, efficient, modern plants that are fit for purpose in the future. The session breaks down the process and discusses aspects such as:

  • The process to deliver a digital plant of capital projects
  • How to transform existing facilities and develop a true digital replica
  • The roadmap of building 8D dimensions of data

Presented by:

  • Wassim Ghadban, Vice President, Global Innovation & Digital Engineering, Kent

Wednesday 8th June | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | Roadmap to decarbonized chemicals
Wednesday 8th June, 14.30 – 15.00pm BST

As we phase out fossil feedstocks, we explore wider low carbon chemical production to decarbonize the chemicals our society is based upon.

In this session we will explore the roadmap to decarbonized chemicals. The presentation will talk through:

  • Today’s footprint
  • Considerations on whether to decarbonise now through CO2 capture with chemical production or through recycling
  • And finally, the long-term options – alternative approaches for chemical production or alternative feedstocks to fossil fuels.

Presented by:

  • Matt Wills, Market Director | Low Carbon and Onshore Projects, Kent
  • Luigi Crolla, Principal Process Engineer, SME – Low Carbon Technologies, Kent

Wednesday 15th June | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | The new hazards in low carbon, battery storage, hydrogen and CCUS
Wednesday 15th June, 14:30 - 15:00pm BST

As the energy transition gathers pace, large scale storage of Hydrogen, Carbon Dioxide and lithium-ion batteries is demanded on a scale that has not previously been seen. The safety issues associated with these large-scale energy storage sites are not well understood.

In this session, we will discuss the key issues which need to be considered in relation to the siting of such establishments and the key factors to ensure the safety of workers, public and emergency services.

Presented by:

  • Andrew Chisholm, Chief Engineer, Safety and Loss Prevention Global TA, Kent
  • Ian Lines, Chief Engineer, SME - Onshore QRA and Land-Use Planning, Kent

Wednesday 22nd June | 14:30 - 15:00pm BST | Thermal power with CCUS

The Kent team were tasked with undertaking a study into the large-scale deployment of power with carbon capture and storage (CCS) which evolved into bp’s NZT project. The team developed a generic design for power with CCS to be universally deployable, factoring in cost of such a scheme, location and economies of scale.

In this session, we will provide an overview of the learnings from this study and how they can be applied to future low carbon projects.
