Major partnership for offshore ‎transport and storage

BP, Eni, Equinor, National Grid, Shell and Total have formed a new partnership to develop ‎offshore carbon dioxide transport and storage infrastructure in the North Sea.

The Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP) will create the infrastructure that will serve the proposed Net Zero Teesside (NZT) and Zero Carbon Humber (ZCH) ‎projects that aim to establish decarbonised industrial clusters in Teesside and Humberside.‎ Both are at-scale decarbonisation projects to be commissioned by 2026 ‎using a combination of carbon capture, ‎hydrogen and fuel-switching to allow decarbonisation of ‎up to 50 per cent of the UK’s industrial emissions.‎

BP will lead the NEP as operator and the team progressing the project ‎will draw on expertise from across all the partners.‎

Andy Lane, vice president of Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage solutions at BP and managing director for Net Zero Teesside, said: ‎‎“The formation of the Northern Endurance Partnership is another significant milestone towards ‎developing the offshore infrastructure that will be needed to safely transport and store CO2 from ‎CCUS projects along England’s east coast. The partnership and our joint bid demonstrate industry’s ‎willingness to come together and collaborate wherever possible to accelerate making CCUS a reality ‎in the UK, helping to decarbonise the local economy and contributing to the UK’s climate goals.” ‎
