HOUSTON  ABS has issued approval in principle (AiP) for Bumi Armada’s design for a floating carbon storage and injection unit.

This is a floating terminal for storing and injecting liquefied CO2 (LCO2) into depleted oil and gas fields or aquifers. The concept is said to provide flexibility to manage LCO2 at low or medium pressure, also providing for LCO2 buffer storage and the preparation of LCO2 for sequestration (permanent storage of the CO2 deep beneath the seabed).

It can receive LCO2 from various sources, such as electricity generation, manufacturing and construction.

The AiP applies to a newbuild or a converted carrier, with smaller tanks to optimize the cargo space layout.
