Shell has awarded Worley a significant low-carbon fuels services contract in the Netherlands. The facility will be able to produce approximately 820 000 tpy of low-carbon fuels every year. Once built, it is expected to be among the biggest in Europe to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel from waste. The construction of this new facility directly supports Shell’s strategy to transform its operations to sustainable Energy and Chemicals Parks, delivering low-carbon products of the future.
The renewable diesel alone could avoid 2.8 million tpy of CO2 emissions. This is the equivalent of taking more than one million European cars off the roads. The facility will also help increase SAF production, which is vital if the aviation industry is to cut carbon emissions. These fuels will be used for blending in support of EU legislation and commitments under the Paris Agreement.
Under the contract, Worley will provide detailed design and procurement services for the facility. This award follows the collaboration between Shell and Worley over the last 18 months to complete the early engineering and design services for the project.
The services will be executed by Worley’s office in The Hague with support from Worley’s Global Integrated Delivery team.
“We are long-standing partners of Shell and this contract award further consolidates our global relationship. We value Shell’s continued trust in us to deliver this significant project, which will help Shell meet its own target of becoming a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050,” said Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer of Worley.
