CCUS projects on the rise

Since 2018, capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) has been gaining momentum. Project developers have announced ambitions for more than 200 new capture facilities in operation by 2030, capturing over 220 metric tons of CO2 per year.* But how can these projects progress to a final investment decision (FID)?

Selecting the right partner is critical to the success of your project—from FID, development, and operations to long-term monitoring. SLB has been involved in more than 100 CCUS projects worldwide and across industries for the past two decades, supporting companies in their decarbonization journeys.

We are currently engaged in multiple global projects where we provide sequestration site subsurface modeling and development plans, CO2 flow assurance, injectivity derisking, and CO2 containment monitoring. Our global CCUS projects span across onshore and offshore applications and industries—including ethanol, methanol, blue hydrogen, bioenergy with CCS (BECCS), oil and gas processing, enhanced oil recovery, cement, power, steel, and more.

CCUS is especially suited for large-scale industrial processes. Here are some key sectors that have high potential for commercial-scale deployment.

What does the landscape of CCUS projects look like today?

SLB has worked with companies ranging from oil and gas to utility and power, steel and cement, biomass, and more. Projects include both on- and offshore applications and have focused on injection into saline aquifers and utilized depleted oil and gas reservoirs.

What role do partnerships and collaboration play in CCUS?

Today, we are seeing more collaborative CCUS projects. We collaborate to provide reliable, efficient, and economic CCUS projects to achieve net zero. As the CCUS industry matures, we anticipate more opportunities among industry players to exchange best practices, lessons learned, and the latest in technological innovation. Ultimately, this will help drive new and innovative CCUS solutions.

What kind of planning is involved to implement a CCUS project?

We have a workflow that starts out with the preselection process. This involves us collaborating with you to assess a project’s feasibility before any further investment is done. The next step is the appraisal phase. This is where we get into the site specifics by building geological models leveraging our subsurface data and domain expertise. Then, in the development stage, we manage building out the project. This includes determining the well location for storing the CO2, how many remaining injection and monitoring wells are required, setting up the air and ground monitoring services, and completing any other permit-specific requirements to begin injection. Next comes the injection phase followed by the final phase, postinjection, which can last up to 100 years, depending on where the project is located.
