L10CCS CO2 storage project reaches FEED phase


The Netherlands – L10CCS project, set to become one of the largest CO₂ storage locations in the Dutch North Sea, is now progressing to the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) phase.

Led by Neptune Energy in collaboration with partners EBN, Tenaz Energy, and ExxonMobil Nederland CCS, the project aims to annually store a substantial five million tons of CO₂.

The successful completion of the Concept Select phase has paved the way for L10CCS to transition into the crucial FEED phase. This achievement follows meticulous technical and economic analyses conducted during the Concept Select stage. With Petrofac at the helm for FEED project implementation, the consortium is poised to undertake the next level of engineering for the L10CCS storage.

Awaiting permit

The project partners submitted a storage permit application in the second quarter of 2023, a pivotal step awaiting approval from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate. Simultaneously, discussions have started with companies interested in storing their CO₂ emissions in the North Sea’s vacant gas fields. Contractual arrangements are also in progress, reflecting a collaborative effort to advance carbon capture and storage (CCS) initiatives.

L10CCS’s roadmap aligns with the Aramis project, a broader CO₂ transport and storage initiative. The FEED phase is projected for completion in the second half of 2024, setting the stage for a final investment decision in 2025. Anticipated to be operational by 2028, L10CCS is synchronizing its timeline with the delivery of the CO₂ transport system associated with the Aramis project.
