Technip Energies and Saulsbury Industries were awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement and construction to expand the carbon capture and storage at Exxon Mobil's LaBarge, Wyoming, facility, a press release announced on May 12.

Technip Energies will be responsible for the engineering and procurement services, while Saulsbury Industries will perform construction and the pipeline installation.

“We are very pleased to be working with ExxonMobil to expand the CCS at LaBarge, the world’s largest carbon capture facility," Laure Mandrou, senior vice president of carbon-free solutions at Technip Energies said in the press release. "We are committed to advancing the energy transition and this project will be a hallmark in reducing carbon emissions.”

The expansion will consist of a modification of the existing gas treatment facility to increase the carbon capture capacity and the installation of pipeline to transport the CO2 to the reservoir where it will be stored.

The LaBarge plant has already captured more CO2 than any other facility in the world. The plant has capacity to capture more than 6 million metric tons per year, and this expansion project will enable the capture of more than one million additional metric tons of CO2 per year.

“The expansion of carbon capture and storage capacity at LaBarge underscores Exxon Mobil’s commitment to advancing lower-emissions technologies with projects around the world," Exxon Mobil president of low carbon solutions Dan Ammann commented. "Carbon capture and storage is necessary to help meet society’s net-zero goals and, with the right policies in place, the technology can be broadly deployed immediately.”
