Carbon capture, utilisation and storage is a key element of the global toolkit to manage carbon emissions and support the movement to net zero. The UK and Europe are at the forefront of this nascent industry, identifying and overcoming the challenges that the transport of carbon dioxide poses in the management of flow regimes, product specifications, and equipment design to achieve the aspirations for carbon sequestration. This evening event will provide an opportunity to understand some of these challenges and solutions.


Implementing CCUS – Northern Endurance Partnership and the East Coast Cluster  

Calum Hayton, regional manager of Central Subsea team, bp 

The Northern Endurance Partnership, operated by bp, is coming to the end of FEED.  This presentation will outline the key elements of the project, then outline some of the key challenges being faced by the subsea equipment and discuss some of the solutions and approaches being considered. 

The Subsea and Facilities Challenges Facing CCS

Andy Robertson, Concept Development Manager, Worley
Andy is a conceptual specialist with >30 years’ experience in the energy sector.  Whilst this was primarily focussed on upstream oil and gas developments, he is now applying these skills to supporting the energy transition journey. 

An overview of development challenges from a facilities and pipelines perspective, are there any show-stopping challenges preventing offshore CCS? 

This presentation will cover 

  • Reservoir type – saline aquifer vs depleted oil/gas reservoir 
  • Dry vs wet trees 
  • Reuse vs new facilities 
  • Net zero challenges 

How will these challenges be addressed and what will their implication be to design? 

CCUS – The perspective from an EPCI contractor

Sylvain Denniel, Engineering Manager – Design, Advisory, Technology, TechnipFMC 

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a rapidly growing market critical to the net zero ambitions of the international community. Subsea CCS has a vital role to play, especially in parts of the world where offshore storage sites are the only viable solution for large-scale CO2 storage. The implementation of a successful strategy requires all stakeholders must work together to adapt the expertise and technology from the O&G industry to a new and evolving set of CCS regulations and requirements.  

This presentation discusses the perspective of an integrated EPCI contractor aiming to bridge this gap both at product and system levels.
