CGG and Kent Announce Strategic Carbon Capture & Hydrogen Partnership
CGG, a global technology leader in geoscience, has announced a strategic partnership with Kent, a leading energy services engineering company, to work together on realizing decarbonisation opportunities through CCUS development and hydrogen production and supply.
CGG and Kent will be providing customers in the energy and industrial sectors with ‘end-to-end’ services across the life cycle of the projects. For example, from subsurface characterization required for storage screening and evaluation to project engineering, planning, construction, and commissioning, including late-life activities such as decommissioning and long-term monitoring, that include instrumentation and data management.
This collaboration brings the capability to masterplan entire CCUS clusters. CGG will deploy their world-leading capabilities for subsurface characterization and subsurface risk analysis for CCUS and H2 projects as well as monitoring and instrumentation technologies for long-term monitoring and environmental assessment. CGG also has an extensive Earth Data library of geology and seismic multi-client data to help clients quickly identify suitable storage sites in depleted oil and gas reservoirs and aquifers. Kent will bring to the collaboration their world-class capabilities in engineering and design of facilities, CO2 capture, transportation through pipeline to wellhead, where they will work alongside CGG from wellhead and into storage reservoir.
CGG has more than 15 years of experience supporting a number of high-profile CCUS projects around the world, including Sleipner, Troll, Weyburn, Pembina and Gorgon. CGG can support clients throughout the lifecycle of CCUS and Energy Storage, including H2. This can be for the initial screening of potential storage sites, during injection operations, and also for economics optimization and long-term monitoring after injection ends.
Kent has been involved in more than 50 CCUS projects worldwide and was a key player in one of the world’s largest operational CCUS projects at Boundary Dam, Canada. Kent also have more than 50 years’ experience on hydrogen projects, including most recently HyNet in the UK. Kent and CGG will use their industry-leading experience to develop realistic feasibility studies and concept designs to support client stage gating processes.
