Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage

Comprehensive carbon capture and storage service.

A wide range of technical services for the feasibility, planning, development and operational stages of carbon capture and storage projects.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an important emissions reduction technology that can be applied across the energy system. CO2 can be captured from sources such as coal-fired power plants or cement plants and recycled or transported to a storage site and injected underground so that it is not released into the atmosphere. The application of this technology is considered essential in the global energy transition in support of decarbonization.

Our capabilities include:

  • Subsurface modeling and risk analysis
  • Advanced geomechanical laboratory analysis techniques
  • Greenhouse Gas (GHG) verification services
  • Health and safety management
  • Supply chain assurance and project supervision

With extensive experience of carbon sequestration and underground gas storage projects, we offer the expertise to support the future development of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) projects.
