Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage set to play key role in reducing global emissions

Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) has emerged as one of the key technologies set to reduce carbon emissions, proving especially useful in projects where eliminating all process emissions is not possible  As a result, Oil & Gas companies are investing in CCUS projects as part of ongoing strategies to reduce their emission footprint and boost sustainability efforts.   Our recent report, CCUS Strategies in Oil and Gas, reveals that the energy sector accounts for approximately three-quarters of total greenhouse gas emissions and has a key role to play in reducing global warming over the coming decades.   Our report will help you:  
  • Understand CCUS and its importance in reducing global emissions 
  • Analyze CCUS plant trends 
  • Gain insight from leaders in the Oil & Gas industry on implementation of CCUS projects

The firms are jointly evaluating possible opportunities to develop oil assets that are carbon-negative and use anthropogenic CO₂ via carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS).

As part of this effort, the two firms will jointly explore opportunities for CO₂ offtake from projects operated by Mitsui, in the US Gulf Coast.

Furthermore, MEPUSA will identify opportunities in the CCUS sphere internationally that allow for further collaboration with Denbury.

Mitsui energy business unit chief operating officer Toru Matsui said: “We are pleased to begin this exciting and impactful partnership with Denbury.

“Through this joint evaluation, we hope to deepen our relationship with Denbury to further develop our CCUS value chain in the US.

“Through our involvement in developing CCUS projects globally, Mitsui aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions and create a sustainable and eco-friendly society.”

In a separate announcement, Cheniere Energy subsidiary Cheniere Marketing agreed to supply LNG to commodity firm Glencore.

Under the approximately 13-year binding sale and purchase agreement (SPA), Glencore will receive approximately 0.8 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG from Cheniere Marketing, on a free-on-board basis, from April 2023.

Cheniere president and CEO Jack Fusco said: “This SPA further builds upon Cheniere’s commercial momentum, marking another important milestone in contracting our LNG capacity ahead of an FID of Corpus Christi Stage 3, which we expect to occur next year.”

Corpus Christi Stage 3 project will comprise up to seven midscale liquefaction trains.

The project will have a total nominal production capacity of around 10Mtpa.

This LNG supply deal comes amid increasing global oil prices due to surging fuel demand and tight supply.
