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

Under the long-term contract agreement, Air Liquide will manage the operations of the 255t-per-day hydrogen production unit at the TotalEnergies’ refining and petrochemicals platform in Normandy.

The unit will later be connected to Air Liquide’s hydrogen network to optimise its performance, TotalEnergies said.

The two firms are also planning to develop a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project that would decarbonise the hydrogen produced at the Normandy platform.

As part of this effort, Air Liquide would help in reducing CO₂ emitted by TotalEnergies’ hydrogen production unit at the site using its Cryocap carbon capture technology.

TotalEnergies will be responsible for transportation and storage process of the captured CO₂, through projects including Norway’s Northern Lights and the Aramis CCS project in the Netherlands.

The project is expected help in reducing CO₂ emissions from the hydrogen unit by around 650,000t per year by 2030.

TotalEnergies refining and chemicals president and executive committee member Bernard Pinatel said: “This planned investment at our Normandy platform will enhance its industrial competitiveness and secure its long-term future.

“These projects contribute to the collective effort launched in the Le Havre industrial zone and the Axe Seine. This is fully aligned with TotalEnergies’ ambition to get to net zero emissions by 2050.”

The cooperation is aligned with the two firm’s aim to help decarbonise industrial operations in the ‘Axe Seine/Normandy’.

Air Liquide Group executive committee member supervising Europe industries activities and executive vice president François Jackow said: “In line with our objective to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, Air Liquide is acting now to develop low-carbon and renewable hydrogen production and build a more sustainable future.”

In July 2021, the two parties agreed to develop carbon capture and storage infrastructure in Normandy to reduce CO₂ emissions by up to three million tonnes per year by 2030.
