Worley awarded detail design contract with TAQA Energy BV


Worley has been awarded a contract with TAQA Energy BV to provide detail design services to a new off-gas compressor system at its Bergermeer gas storage facility in Alkmaar, the Netherlands.

The contract extension follows on from work Worley has been doing for TAQA Energy BV since 2017. This includes feasibility and concept studies alongside operational, capacity and reliability support at TAQA’s Bergermeer gas storage facility.

The treatment and compression facility is designed as a zero-emissions plant and Europe’s largest storage for open-access gas. Commercial storage operations began in 2015, re-using the depleted Bergermeer gas reservoir, located 2,500 metres underground.

Under contract, Worley will provide detail design services to TAQA’s new off-gas compressor system project. The project will benefit from an innovative approach using a four train non-API compressor system, ensuring high uptime, better operability and maintaining zero-emissions.

Work started in June 2021 and is led by Worley’s Specialist Technical Solutions division in Aberdeen, which delivers specialist technical insight and knowledge on everything from pipelines and asset integrity to process engineering and structural analysis. It will have support from its Global Integrated Delivery team in Hyderabad, India.

On the announcement of the contract extension, Kirsten Oliver, Director, Worley Specialist Technical Solutions said “We already have a dedicated task force, which provides direct plant support and this contract builds on our sustained relationship with TAQA. It also demonstrates confidence in our ability to provide our full suite of services to TAQA key operations as we help it find a way forward in the face of the energy transition.”
