Carbon capture and sequestration project plans unveiled for the US Gulf Coast


Plans have today (16th Nov) been unveiled for a carbon capture and sequestration project to be located adjacent to Freeport LNG’s natural gas pre-treatment facilities on the Gulf Coast, US – and it could be storing carbon dioxide (CO2) by late 2024.

Freeport LNG has signed a joint venture agreement with Storegga and Talos Energy for the project that will utilise the US company’s geological sequestration site, located less than half a mile from the point of capture, to permanently sequester the CO2.

To do this, Storegga will combine its end-to-end CCS project experience with Talos’ offshore operational and sub-surface expertise. Talos has will be the project manager and operator partner of the Freeport LNG CCS project (FLNG CCS).

“We are excited to announce this project with Freeport LNG, a global LNG leader. The entrepreneurial collaboration of our teams allowed for the development of a unique, stand-alone carbon sequestration solution, which provides proof of concept to our broader CCS portfolio and is complementary to our large hub-based project in Jefferson County,” said Timothy Duncan, President and CEO of Talos.
