Project Greensand, which goals to retailer CO2 beneath the Danish North Sea, has cleared a primary main hurdle. Injection and storage of CO2 within the Nini West subsea reservoir has been licensed possible by impartial certification physique DNV GL.
The Nini West oil reservoir is operated by INEOS Oil & Gas Denmark with Wintershall Dea as associate. With this certification DNV GL confirms that the reservoir is conceptually appropriate for injecting zero.45 million tonnes CO2 per yr per properly for a 10-year interval, and that the subsea reservoir can safely comprise the CO2 in compressed kind.
Wintershall Dea, INEOS Oil and Gas Denmark, Maersk Drilling and a analysis associate, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) fashioned the Project Greensand consortium to reuse discontinued offshore oil fields for the everlasting protected storage of CO2 captured at onshore industrial services.
Project Greensand targets having the primary properly prepared for injection from the Nini platform in 2025. Longer time period, the ambition is to develop capability to retailer roughly three.5 million tonnes CO2 per yr earlier than 2030.
Wintershall Dea brings to the venture a robust information of the related reservoirs and as Klaus Langemann, SVP for Technology & Innovation, explains, the corporate is aware of the atmosphere properly: “We have been producing from the related oil fields in Denmark for many years and have already got a excessive stage of data of the reservoir traits. The Greensand Project will additional advance Wintershall Dea’s understanding of CCS, so we’re happy to see this constructive end result, which states that there are not any showstoppers for additional investigating the storage of CO2. We are trying ahead to additional cooperation with the venture companions for the subsequent part and are glad to contribute to a venture with the potential to mitigate CO2 emissions in Denmark.“
The venture kinds part of Wintershall Dea’s intention to help the
power transition. Earlier in November, Wintershall Dea revealed greenhouse gasoline discount targets, aiming for web zero for its manufacturing actions (scope 1 + 2 emissions, operated and non-operated upstream actions at fairness share foundation) by 2030. Beyond 2030, the corporate intends to considerably scale back Scope three emissions, that are primarily generated by means of the combustion of gasoline and oil it produces. Hydrogen and CCS can play a key function on this, as the corporate has each related belongings and competencies to assist in contributing to emission reductions.
