Fluor Corporation announced today that it was awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for California Resources Corporation’s (CRC) carbon capture and sequestration project, Cal Capture, at the 550-megawatt, natural gas-powered Elk Hills Power Plant in Tupman, California. The FEED is being funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through collaboration with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) as part of a larger initiative to advance carbon capture technology development.

“Fluor’s commitment to helping clients achieve their clean energy goals continues with this recent award from CRC,” said Mark Fields, group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business. “We are honored to be selected by CRC to help them design and permit California’s first carbon capture and sequestration system.”

Fluor’s scope of work is as the licensor providing engineering services for the plant’s licensed process unit and required utility systems using its proprietary Econamine FG PlusSM carbon capture technology which is an energy-efficient and cost-effective process for the removal of carbon dioxide from flue gas streams. The process will incorporate Fluor’s advanced solvent formulation together with a number of patented energy savings features.
