Porthos, the initiative for carbon capture and storage in Rotterdam, is expected to store an annual amount of 2.5 million tonnes of CO2 from the industry in empty gas fields beneath the North Sea as from 2024.
After a vote in the Norwegian parliament, Norway approved the final investment decision for the Northern Lights project, enabling the shipping, reception and sequestration of CO2 in geological strata in the Northern North Sea, approximately 2,600 meters below the seabed.
Port of Rotterdam reported that according to the provisional advice of the Commission for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), several points of the EIA for Porthos are incomplete.
A new marine emission reduction system, called ”TECO 2030 Future Funnel”, has been created, which is a future funnel that can capture carbon among other emissions.
Companies of the oil and gas sector have partnered with researchers to consider co-developing an Australian offshore CO2 Capture and Storage Hub Project, called the deepC Store Project.
The Project Greensand consortium, consisting of INEOS Oil & Gas Denmark, Wintershall Dea and Maersk Drilling, has been issued a certification of feasibility by DNV GL for the storage of CO2 at the Nine West reservoir in the Danish North Dea.
Høglund Marine Solutions, in collaboration with HB Hunte Engineering, has developed a tank concept for LPG and CO2 transportation, based on existing, proven technology. This new system doubles current vessel cargo capacity to transport liquified CO2.
Equinor announced its ambition to become a net-zero energy company by 2050. The ambition includes emissions from production and final consumption of energy.
Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) recently joined application to the EU funding for CO2 capture project on Amager Bakke, which can contribute to making Copenhagen CO2 neutral by 2025.
