ASKER, NorwayTGS has sold one of its seismic datasets to OGCI Climate Investments’ Net Zero Teesside project, a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) initiative planned for northeast England.

The client will use the data to verify the feasibility of storing carbon dioxide (CO2) in offshore reservoirs in the Permian gas basin in the Southern North Sea.

Net Zero Teesside has support from BP, Eni, Equinor, Occidental Petroleum, Shell, and Total.

OGCI Climate Investments and its partners are working with the UK government on a supportive policy framework to allow the UK to lead development and export of CCUS technologies globally.

Colin McGill, Net Zero Teesside project director, said: “To be able to remove carbon dioxide emissions and store them deep underground – preventing them from being released into the atmosphere – means we need to be 100% sure that the reservoir chosen is fit-for-purpose.

“Our agreement with TGS allows us to carefully analyze the geology of the reservoirs and make the correct decisions that will sustain our CCUS operations for millennia to come.”
