Technip Energies gets Viking CCS FEED deal

CCUS

United Kingdom – Viking CCS, the Humber-based CO2 transportation and storage network, led by Harbour Energy in collaboration with bp, has given Technip Energies the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for the project.

Viking CCS, once operational, is poised to become one of the largest carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects globally. The ambitious goal is to capture and store a staggering 10 million tonnes of CO2 annually by 2030, contributing up to one-third of the UK’s CCS target. Beyond its environmental impact, the project aims to position the UK as a frontrunner in the CCS domain, attracting substantial investments and driving economic growth.

Technip Energies will be responsible for designing the CO2 transportation system, a pivotal component of the entire CCS infrastructure. The project’s backbone lies in its storage capacity, with 300 million tonnes of CO2 earmarked for storage across the depleted Viking gas fields. This advanced technology not only addresses environmental concerns but also opens doors for a comprehensive CO2 capture, transport, and storage value chain.

Viking CCS has the potential to be a transformative force for the Humber region, positioning it as a global leader in the energy sector. Beyond environmental benefits, the project could unlock a £7 billion of investment between 2025 and 2035. The estimated £4 billion gross value add (GVA) to the Humber and its surrounding areas could usher in an era of economic prosperity.
