LONDON — Viking CCS, Harbour Energy and bp’s planned CO2 transportation and storage network in the Humber industrial region in eastern England has awarded Technip Energies the FEED contract for the project.
The scope includes design of the CO2 transportation system. Findings will support work on the costs and schedule as the development heads toward a final investment decision.
Once operational, this could be on the world’s largest carbon capture and storage projects, potentially storing 10 MM metric tons/year of CO2 beneath the UK southern North Sea.
The independently verified storage capacity is 300 MM metric tons of CO2 across the depleted Viking gas fields, originally developed by Conoco.
Viking CCS would reuse existing pipelines and the decommissioned fields to provide industries in the UK with CO2 transport and storage options.
