NOVA ENERGIES – a joint venture of Technip Energies and NIPIGAS – has been awarded a pre-FEED contract by SIBUR to study potential carbon capture solutions for its ‘ZapSibNeftekhim’ plant.
The scope of NOVA ENERGIES work includes technology and optimal technical solutions development, along with a cost estimate for the process of capturing, transporting and utilising carbon dioxide (CO2) from the operating enterprises of ZapSibNeftekhim and the Tobolsk thermoelectric power station, which is the unique supplier of steam for the plant and the key supplier of heat for housing and social facilities of the region.
Loïc Chapuis, Senior Vice President Paris Business Unit of Technip Energies, commented: “This award confirms our commitment to contribute and accelerate, through our joint venture with NIPIGAS, the Russian journey to the energy transition. It’s also a testimony of our long-term relationship and trust with SIBUR. This project will reinforce Technip Energies positioning as a leader of low carbon solutions, and is the results of our more than 10-year world-class project delivery capacities in Russia.”
Dmitry Evstafiev, General Director of NIPIGAS, added: “We are pleased to announce that NIPIGAS team in partnership with Technip Energies has begun the development of a project to reduce carbon emissions of the largest petrochemical enterprise in our country and the main production asset of SIBUR. This project gives NOVA ENERGIES an opportunity to contribute to the development and to take a leading position in the market for energy transition in our country from the very beginning of the operation of the joint venture.”
