Cross-border CO2 transport and storage project to advance EU’s energy goals


The project concept for a new cross-border carbon dioxide (CO2) storage solution named NoordKaap will involve the transportation of CO2 captured from industrial emitters for direct injection at offshore locations and for terminal offloading, announced project developers CapeOmega and Neptune Energy (Neptune).

Revealed today (22nd Feb), NoordKaap aims to provide cost-effective, scalable infrastructure solutions to aid large-scale, flexible CO2 transport and storage from multiple industrial emitters clusters.

Having signed a Letter of Intent with the partners, German multinational energy company RWE will help to assess the possibility to ship green CO2 from their biomass Eemshaven facility for offshore storage in the Dutch North Sea.

By exploring the potential for a network-based approach to carbon capture and storage (CCS) via marine transport, NoordKaap will contribute to the completion of Dutch, Norwegian and European climate and energy goals.
