Shearwater Geoservices has won work for multiple 3D seismic surveys to scope out carbon storage potential for Eni in the UK.
The UK’s bus and lorry fleets, plus many homes, could be running on low carbon hydrogen within two decades thanks to green technologies now being pioneered in three UK regions renowned until now for their carbon-intensive industries.
The head of carbon capture developer Storegga says the UK is “sitting on an opportunity” to capitalise on its expertise and resources in deploying CCS.
Industrial clusters are critical to shifting to low carbon energy to continue operating in the UK.
Eni (BIT: ENI) is back in the black after an “excellent” financial year in which it accelerated the pace of its transformation strategy.
Eni’s UK subsidiary has signed 19 memoranda of understanding (MoUs) related to carbon capture and storage as part of the HyNet North West project, which won government backing last year.
With around 200 carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects now in the pipeline, the fledgling sector is set for significant growth in 2022 – but cost controls, operational success and political support will be essential to maintain pace, says Wood Mackenzie.
The COP26 climate conference is now behind us and we are left with mixed feelings about the future health of our planet. While some summarised the conference as “blah blah blah”, others talked about constructive discussions and breakthroughs.
“Energy transition is at the forefront of our strategy”, explains Dan Carter, global director of decarbonisation and new energies at Wood.
The UK Government has launched the next step in its bid to deliver carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) at two industrial clusters by the mid-2020s.
I didn’t want to revisit the UK’s carbon capture debacle so soon, but the decision to demote Scotland’s Acorn project to the second division has forced my hand.
A north-east engineering giant founded by the family of Sir Ian Wood has won a design contract on a carbon capture project in England that beat out a rival bid in Scotland in a recent competition.
Scotland’s First Minister has questioned the decision not to award government funding to the Acorn CCS project.
Amid disappointment for the Scottish cluster, two other projects have been successful in their bids to become the first two carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) developments in the UK.
Collaboration rather than competition will “define the success” of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the UK, an energy expert has predicted.
The development of a “net-zero hub” on the Firth of Forth is key to achieving Scotland’s climate change goals, according to global natural resources consultancy Wood Mackenzie.
Italian oil and gas major Eni has announced its participation in the UK Government’s first carbon capture and storage tender.
The government has set a demanding timeframe to bring hydrogen into primetime – but crunch time is looming for the legal framework required.
