Seabed rights for carbon dioxide (CO2) transportation and storage at the Victor field and the Viking A field in the Southern North Sea in connection with the Humber regional cluster.
On 21 May 2020 The Crown Estate advertised that it would consider applications for CO2 transportation and storage seabed rights from developers associated with a full chain carbon capture, utilisation and storage project identified in the July 2018 CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce Report
• The HyNet Project in the North West of England
• The Teesside Clean Gas Project
• The Humber Industrial Project
The Crown Estate has received two applications from Chrysaor Production (U.K.) Limited for seabed rights to transport and store CO2 at the Victor field and the Viking A field in the Southern North Sea in connection with the Humber regional cluster. The applicant has provided evidence of appropriate commitment and capability to receive CO2 for transportation and storage from the Humber regional cluster and has had an application for an offshore CO2 storage licence accepted for consideration by the Oil and Gas Authority.
Subject to The Crown Estate being satisfied that the liabilities arising from any grant of such seabed rights are acceptable to it including through the continued application of an appropriate legislative and regulatory regime, The Crown Estate intends to grant CO2 transportation and storage seabed rights to Chrysaor Production (U.K.) Limited.
