Petrofac has initiated the front-end engineering design (FEED) work for the Aramis carbon transport and storage system in the Netherlands.
This carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, a collaboration between TotalEnergies, Shell, Energie Beheer Nederland and Gasunie, aims to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France.
Aramis will capture carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions from industrial sources and transport them for permanent storage in depleted North Sea gas fields.
The captured CO₂ will be transported either via onshore pipelines or ships to a hub in the Port of Rotterdam.
After temporary storage and compression, the CO₂ will be piped to offshore facilities, where it will be injected into the seabed.

Petrofac’s role in the Aramis CCS project encompasses the design of a 32in CO₂ trunkline, which includes onshore, landfall and offshore sections, as well as an offshore CO₂ distribution hub platform.
The company is also responsible for designing a pipeline connecting the distribution hub to a storage facility and the overall control and safety systems.
It is collaborating with Peritus International and Offshore Independents to advance the project.
Peritus International is handling the offshore trunkline design, while Offshore Independents is focusing on the landfall design and offshore installation analysis.
Petrofac chief operating officer of energy transition projects John Pearson said:
“We have a growing track record in supporting our clients in defining the infrastructure for developments across the CCS value chain – from the capture of emissions at source to the infrastructure required to transport and permanently store it.
“The Aramis project will be vital to the European Union reaching the goals outlined in the European Green Deal, and we are proud to be deploying our skills and experience in support.”
Last month, Petrofac said it is considering the sale of non-core assets.
