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 consenting and environmental assessment, and front-end engineering design (FEED) contracts have been awarded by gas distribution network firm Cadent.

Wood will be responsible for leading the design, consenting and consultation of the new 85km hydrogen pipeline and above-ground installations for the project.

The firm will also provide land rights consultation and engagement services in addition to system modelling and design services for the pipeline.

Additionally, Wood will manage the environmental assessment for the pipeline.

Wood hydrogen vice president Josh Carmichael said: “This first-of-its-kind project will help meet the challenge of reducing CO₂ emissions from industry, providing fuel for our transport as well as heating for our homes and businesses, and could really put the region at the forefront of the UK’s drive to reaching net-zero by 2050.”

Planned to be commissioned in 2025, the HyNet North West project aims to unlock a lower carbon economy for the north-west of England and north Wales.

It is expected to reduce ten million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions per year by 2030, the equivalent of taking four million cars off the road.

In addition to producing, storing, and distributing hydrogen, the project will have the capacity to capture and store carbon from industry in the north-west of England and north Wales.

The integrated project is being developed by a consortium of regionally located partners, and core consortium of eight partners, including Cadent.
