The Viking Link carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in the UK has entered the front-end engineering design (FEED) phase with the award of the contract to Technip Energies.
Viking CCS, previously known as V Net Zero, is the Humber-based CO2 transportation and storage network led by UK oil and gas producer Harbour Energy with energy giant BP as partner.
Technip Energies’ contract includes responsibility for the design of the CO2 transportation system and is seen as another important milestone for the project as it progresses its design, costs and schedule towards a final investment decision (FID), expected in the first quarter of 2025.
Charles Cessot, SVP T.EN X – Consulting and Products of Technip Energies, commented: “We are proud to be supporting the UK’s transition to a more sustainable future. Our involvement in the Viking CCS project will help reduce the UK’s carbon emissions and emphasises our commitment to sustainable energy solutions. We are excited to collaborate with Harbour Energy and contribute our expertise in FEED services to this initiative.”
