Carbon Capture and Storage
Whilst energy efficiency and renewable energy are seen as the key mechanisms to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions; carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to capture up to 90% of CO2 released from coal fired power stations.
This captured carbon can then be transported to storage facilities. Pipelines offer the best option for the secure and continuous transport of millions of tonnes of CO2 from different sources to collection hubs onshore and then to offshore storage sites.
ABPmer provides specialist advice on the siting of carbon capture facilities as well as a complete package of support to route planners and managers to satisfy both statutory consenting requirements and the lifetime management of an asset. We regularly advise developers and decision-makers about marine environmental impact, mitigation and monitoring of pipelines as well as developments in the coastal zone.

Selected Project experience:
CCS Gas Pipeline Route - Confidential
ABPmer was commissioned to undertake a pre-feasibility study to develop a baseline understanding of the environment in which an offshore gas pipeline could be constructed, and identify possible route corridors and landfall sites for the transportation of gas between mainland UK to offshore natural gas fields in the central and southern North Sea. Subsequently ABPmer was commissioned to compile and advance Consenting Programme for the offshore gas pipeline forming a component of a carbon capture storage project.
