  • Hydrogen Concept
  • Project Management Consultancy (PMC)
  • Feasibility Study
  • Pre-FEED
  • FEED
  • Process Safety


The client is one of the UK’s largest cluster by industrial emissions, and is the location of a wide range of heavy industrial plants – including oil refining, steel manufacture, cement, chemicals and others – making it a potential location for a Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) cluster. The site has additional access to suitable CO2 storage sites in the Southern North Sea.

Carbon Capture & Storage Project:
Following the successful completion of feasibility study & pre-FEED by Penspen in 2022, the team have been selected by the client to further deliver the following Project Management Consultancy (PMC) services:

  • Technical Support to Voluntary Carbon Credits (VCCS)/Development Constent Order (DCO) Application
  • 55km CO2 24” pipeline route from point A to B
  • The addition of new project team members: Construction Manager, Senior Pipeline Engineer, and Senior Project Engineer to provide significant impact on project deliverables
  • FEED/EPC for the onshore and offshore pipeline and plaftform

Hydrogen Concept Project:
The client operates a power station with capacity to deliver electricity to the UK market and its national chemical parks. As part of Net Zero 2050, developing projects to decarbonise industry is a top priority, and Penspen have been selected to provide the following services to help drive the energy transition:

  • Conceptual study for delivering up to 30% blend hydrogen to combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) units
  • Hydrogen pipeline routing optioneering
  • Process flow assurance
  • Blending station design review
  • Building structural analysis
  • Process safety (QRA, HAZID)
  • Development of basic engineering package
  • Capex estimate
  • Engineering finish forecast
