Shell Catalysts & Technologies to support Calpine’s carbon capture facility in the US

Shell Catalysts & Technologies is set to support Calpine Texas CCUS Holdings, LLC (Calpine)’s front-end engineering and design (FEED) of a post-combustion CO2 capture facility based on Shell’s Cansolv CO2 technology for the Natural Gas Combined Cycle power plant at Calpine’s Deer Park Energy Center in Texas, US. The facility will be designed to capture roughly 5 million tpy (net) CO2, which equates to 95% of the total CO2 emitted by the Natural Gas Combined cycle power plant each year. The FEED study will be supported by Technip Energies on behalf of Shell Catalysts & Technologies. This is one of the largest CO2 capture FEED studies awarded worldwide.

The Deer Park Energy Center, located in Deer Park, Texas, is a combined cycle cogeneration facility supplying a baseload capacity of over 1100 MW to the ERCOT grid as well as steam to an adjacent facility.

On 6 October 2021, the project was selected by the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management for federal funding as part of the department’s efforts to support transformative and innovative carbon capture and storage technologies. The FEED study is expected to be finalised by early 2023.
