North Sea CCS: innovation and impact

  • Thursday, 07 September 2017 09:30 - 12:30

Venue: Room 2, Main Building, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre  |  City: Bridge of Don, United Kingdom

The Offshore Europe 2017 conference sought insight into innovative technologies and operational efficiencies, which can help reduce the oil and gas sector's environmental footprint. Our half-day event explored how North Sea Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) can:

  • Reinvent the industry and redeploy the O&G skills base in new opportunities
  • Contribute to maximising recovery while delivering permanent CO₂ storage (CO₂-EOR)
  • Meet Scottish, UK and Paris Agreement climate targets by extending North Sea CCS

It is 20 years since the Sleipner project began storing CO₂ beneath the North Sea off Norway. Sleipner and the later Snohvit project have collectively stored over 20 million tonnes of CO₂ and shown that North Sea CCS is both technically viable and geologically secure.

Our speakers considered new North Sea markets and opportunities offered by CCS and CO₂ utilisation, the need to preserve useful O&G infrastructure at risk of being decommissioned, and the progress being made by Norway on delivering a CCS network in the North Sea region.
