Privately-held Neptune Energy is working with two other companies on a new approach to decarbonising its energy hubs offshore, it said December 29. Offshore wind could be used to power carbon capture and storage and hydrogen production projects.
A memorandum of understanding it signed with Ørsted and Goal7 will see the trio examine the potential to supply renewable electricity from Ørsted’s Hornsea offshore windfarm projects (pictured below) to power future Neptune-operated hubs in the UK North Sea. Goal7 will provide project management support and technical input.
Neptune Energy’s Director of New Energy, Pierre Girard, said: “The development of integrated energy hubs is an important part of Neptune’s strategy to store more carbon than is emitted from our operations and the use of our sold products by 2030.”
