CGG has signed a strategic partnership with Kent, an energy services engineering company, to work together on decarbonization projects associated with the development of CCUS (Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage) and the production and supply of hydrogen.
CGG, the global leader in geoscience technologies, today announced the signing of a strategic partnership with Kent, a leading energy services engineering company, to work together on decarbonization projects associated with the development of CCUS and the production and supply of hydrogen.
CGG and Kent will offer customers in the energy and other industries full-service end-to-end services for their projects, from subsurface characterization to storage site selection and evaluation to the engineering, planning, construction, and commissioning of projects, and finally, the dismantling and long-term monitoring of these sites, which require instrumentation and data management.
This collaboration will allow customers to better plan all the deployment stages of their CCUS projects. CGG will deploy its cutting-edge expertise in subsurface characterization and risk analysis for the CCUS and H2 projects, as well as its monitoring and instrumentation technologies for long-term monitoring and environmental assessment. CGG also has an extensive library of subsurface geological and seismic data to help clients quickly identify suitable storage sites in depleted oil and gas reservoirs and aquifers. Kent will bring to this collaboration its recognized expertise in the engineering and design of carbon dioxide capture installations, transport by pipeline to the wellhead,
CGG has over 15 years of experience in CCUS projects around the world, including Sleipner, Troll, Weyburn, Pembina, and Gorgon. CGG offers its expertise throughout the life cycle of CCUS and underground energy storage, including hydrogen, from the initial selection of potential storage sites, during injection operations and also for the economic optimization and long-term monitoring after the injection phase.
Kent has participated in over 50 CCUS projects worldwide and was a key player in one of the largest operational CCUS projects, at Boundary Dam, Canada. Kent also has over 50 years of experience in hydrogen projects, the most recent of which is HyNet in the UK. Kent and CGG will deploy their industry-leading experience to assist customers with their various feasibility and design studies.
