An Aberdeen business is to lead a first-of-a-kind project which aims to reduce CO2 emissions.
Wood was awarded the multi-million-dollar contract by the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative Climate Investments (OGCI CI).
As part of the work, it will undertake engineering and concept design work for a full-scale gas power plant with carbon capture.
The design will cover five of the principal industrial emitters of C02, hydrogen, fertiliser, petrochemicals, cement and steel.
