Harbour Energy and Associated British Ports (ABP) confirmed their commercial relationship to develop a CO2 import terminal at the Port of Immingham in the United Kingdom.
The terminal will provide a large-scale facility to link CO2 emissions from industrial businesses across the UK to Viking CCS’s high-capacity CO2 storage facilities in the southern North Sea.
ABP’s investment plans for the new infrastructure at the port include the construction of a jetty for the import and export of liquid bulk cargoes, such as green ammonia and liquefied CO2.
According to ABP, construction of the jetty is expected to begin in late 2024 and will be operational and ready to receive the first cargoes of CO2 imports as early as 2027.
“ABP’s dual-purpose jetty will support the reduction in the UK’s emissions and, critically, amplifies the Viking CCS network’s potential to provide a viable solution for stranded CO2 emissions from companies across the UK,” said Steve Cox, EVP HSES and global services of Harbour Energy.
