Eni UK aims to store carbon at Hewett depleted gas field


United Kingdom – The Hewett depleted gas field in the North Sea is the target of a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project proposed by Eni UK, which aims to decarbonize the Bacton and Thames Estuary region.

The North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA) system was used for the application submission. With a total capacity of roughly 330 million tonnes, the Hewett depleted gas field is a perfect site for permanent and safe CO2 storage. As soon as 2027, the project may be fully functional.

Through the CCS project, we will be able to prevent the release of a substantial amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year—enough to offset the annual emissions from more than 3 million households or 6 million vehicles.

Bacton Thames Net Zero

Furthermore, Eni UK has announced the establishment of the Bacton Thames Net Zero initiative to decarbonize and unlock new greener growth opportunities in the automotive, ceramics, food, materials, energy, and waste disposal sectors in the UK South East, thus providing substantial support for the UK’s decarbonization strategy.

The Bacton Thames Net Zero program, which brings together businesses to work toward a common goal, has the potential to be a game-changer in the fight against climate change by helping to meet the decarbonization requirements of the South East of the United Kingdom.
