Worley awarded low-carbon fuels contract

Worley has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) services contract by Alfanar for a low-carbon fuels project in Teesside, UK.

Alfanar’s Lighthouse Green Fuels project will convert residual solid waste into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and green naphtha. The project will process around 1 million tpy of residual solid waste – such as municipal solid waste, refuse-derived fuel or solid recovered fuel – into around 3200 bbl/d of SAF and green naphtha.

“Our work with Alfanar on this important project will contribute to the decarbonisation of air and road transportation,” explained Bradley Andrews, President at Worley. “The project aims to make fuel which produces 80 percent fewer greenhouse gases than current fossil fuels, which could potentially save over 300 000 tpy of emissions. When coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology the plant could achieve in excess of 750 000 tpy.”

The plant is expected to enter commercial operations in 2027, following the scheduled start-up of the first Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) carbon cluster in Teesside.

We will provide FEED services and develop the existing early FEED package and integrate the licensor scope to provide a greater level of definition to the project. Work will be led by our offices in the UK with support from specialists around the world and our Global Integrated Delivery team.

“The UK has an opportunity to be at the forefront of the SAF sector, with its access to suitable feedstocks and planned carbon capture infrastructure. Alfanar has committed to the next major phase of the Lighthouse Green Fuels plant by awarding Worley the FEED contract. We chose Worley because of its commitment to supporting sustainable projects and significant experience with delivering complex megaprojects,” said Noaman Aladhami, UK Country Manager, Alfanar Energy Ltd.

“Low-carbon fuels is a strategic priority for Worley. We look forward to supporting Alfanar in its energy transition journey while remaining aligned with our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world,” said Andrews.
