LONDON — Harbour Energy, developer of the planned Viking CCS (ex-V Net Zero) CO2 transport and storage network project in eastern England, said Nov. 28 that the statutory consultation process has opened for a development consent order for the onshore pipeline.
This will transport CO2 captured from the Immingham industrial area in north Lincolnshire 55 km to the site of the former Theddlethorpe gas terminal on the coast. From there, the CO2 would be transported 140 km offshore to the depleted Viking gas fields, 9,000 ft subsurface, for permanent storage.
Harbour began consultations with interested local parties along the proposed onshore pipeline route earlier.
The company aims to submit a planning application for this pipeline during the first half of 2023, followed by a construction start in 2025, and potential operations phase in 2027.
