Shell to take on Technical Developer role on Acorn CCS

The Acorn Project Partners (Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy) are pleased to announce the appointment of Shell as Technical Developer for the Acorn Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Project. The CCS project includes the CO2 capture project at St Fergus and the transport and storage project which will transport CO2 offshore from St Fergus through the existing Goldeneye pipeline to the Acorn store. Storegga, through their wholly owned subsidiary Pale Blue Dot Energy, will continue as the Lead Project Developer for Acorn.

As Technical Developer, Shell will be assuming responsibility for the technical planning and execution of these CCS projects utilising their capability and experience in major infrastructure developments. These projects establish St Fergus as the hub for the Scottish Cluster as a key enabler in the transition to low carbon energy, and create growth potential for future CO2 transportation and storage.
