Technip Energies and Turner Industries have been selected to carry out engineering, procurement and construction for a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) system being built by Exxon Mobil Low Carbon Solutions Onshore Storage in Louisiana, according to a news release.

The system will be capable of conditioning, compressing and transporting, for eventual storage, up to 800,000 metric tons per year of CO2, Technip said June 6. It will be owned by steel manufacturer Nucor Corp.

France-based Technip will carry out FEED, while Turner will be responsible for construction.

Nucor plans to utilize the system to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from its manufacturing plant in Convent, Louisiana. The site produces direct reduced iron (DRI), which is mixed with recycled scrap to make higher-grade steel products, Technip said in the release.

“The CCUS system is designed to enable the Nucor facility to produce DRI with up to 80% less greenhouse gas emissions than traditional blast furnace iron production,” Technip said.
