Cerilon awards Worley FEL 2 contract for GTL facility
Published by Callum O'Reilly,
Worley has been selected by Cerilon to provide engineering services for the FEL 2 stage of Ceri-lon’s gas-to-liquids (GTL) facility in North Dakota, US.
This GTL facility will convert natural gas to produce up to 24 000 bpd of low carbon emission, synthetic energy products, including ultra-low sulfur diesel, naphtha, and lubricant base oils. With new mandates expected in the US on transportation fuels, the production of these liquids will help meet high demand and assist with the country’s low carbon objectives.
The GTL facility will also include carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), to further enhance the project’s sustainability. The overall plan for the project is to adopt a ‘design one, build many’ approach.
Rhys Mersereau, SVP of Operations, Worley, said: “This energy transi-tion project directly aligns with our purpose of delivering a more sus-tainable world. With escalating future energy demand and concerns for energy security at the forefront of our mind, the production of these low carbon energies will be crucial as we navigate towards net zero.”
Cerilon’s strategy is to replicate this major GTL facility in other sites across North America, with speed – achieved through modularisation – and sustainability as the main drivers. Ron Opperman, CEO of Ceri-lon GTL, said: “Cerilon GTL intends to adopt a design one – build many approach and the Worley team has the GTL experience and global reach that we were looking for in an engineering partner. Their capability to provide full engineering, procurement, and construction services and to support other important elements of our project de-sign such as CCS makes them the right fit for our team.”
