BP hires Shearwater for UK CCUS project

The East Coast Cluster

Shearwater Geoservices has landed a contract with BP for work for the East Coast CCUS cluster in the UK to scope out storage sites.

The deal, issued on behalf of the Northern Endurance partnership, will see Shearwater deliver geophysical data processing and imaging to advance the project.

Formed up of BP, Equinor, Shell, Total Energies and National Grid Ventures, Northern Endurance provides common infrastructure to transport CO2 from the Humber and Teesside in depleted North Sea gas fields.

Shearwater will provide seismic data processing and imaging activity for BP, taking place over eight months.

These datasets will scope out the potential for carbon storage in subsurface structures.

Shearwater’s Reveal software and Monsoon digital cloud programme will be used to carry out the work, with extensive collaboration between BP and Shearwater throughout.

Andy Lane, managing director of the Northern Endurance Partnership, said: “The Southern North Sea has some of the most ideal carbon storage sites anywhere in the world, and the East Coast Cluster has the capacity to store up to 1 billion tonnes of CO2.

“We are aiming for first injection from 2026, and by 2038 will be capturing and storing up to 23 million tonnes of CO2 per year from a wide range of industrial and power projects on Teesside and the Humber.

“We look forward to working with Shearwater on this first-of-a-kind carbon storage project that will create thousands of jobs and help establish the Teesside and Humber regions as a globally-competitive climate-friendly hub for industry and innovation”.

The award comes off the back of similar work awarded by Eni to Shearwater last month on the Hamilton fields.

Shearwater CEO Irene Basilli said: “Shearwater is taking a leading role in supporting our clients to advance their carbon storage projects.

“We have the geophysical expertise, technologies and platforms to help our clients achieve their net zero and low carbon goals through developing carbon storage at scale, and we are pleased to support BP, and their partners, with this ground-breaking project.”
