Located in the Humber, the most industrialised area of the UK with its biggest source of CO2emissions, the project is expected to play a pivotal role in creating a globally leading CCS sector in the UK, contributing to the Government’s target for net zero emissions by 2050.
The Viking CCS initiative is a project focused on the transportation and storage of the captured CO2 into the depleted Viking gas fields. The project aims to reduce UK emissions by 10 million tonnes annually by 2030, increasing to 15 million tonnes per year by 2035.
Technip Energies, supported by its subsidiary Genesis, will provide FEED services for the CO2 transportation system, including the CO2 handling station, onshore and offshore pipeline and a NPAI (Not Permanently Attended Installation) platform.
Charles Cessot, SVP T.EN X – Consulting and Products of Technip Energies, commented: “We are proud to be supporting the UK’s transition to a more sustainable future. Our involvement in the Viking CCS project will help reduce the UK’s carbon emissions and emphasises our commitment to sustainable energy solutions. We are excited to collaborate with Harbour Energy and contribute our expertise in FEED services to this initiative.”
Harbour Energy’s Viking CCS Project Director Graeme Davies said: “We’re delighted to be working with Technip Energies to help deliver another important milestone for the Viking CCS project. The Humber region has long been a global leader in the energy sector, and Viking CCS will help to protect around 20,000 jobs in local industries, while also creating up to 10,000 jobs during construction across all Cluster projects.”
Jim Todd, bp JV Manager for Viking CCS, said: “After three years in development, the Viking CCS project is now entering the FEED phase. This is a significant step in the journey of any project, and we are excited to welcome Technip Energies as the FEED contractor, paving the way for large-scale CCS in the South Humber and North Lincolnshire region.”
