The National Grid has started a study into carbon capture and storage. The Utility company appointed Wood Group Kenny to look into the feasibility of the transport and injection of carbon dioxide into an offshore saline aquifer in the Southern North Sea.

Russell Cooper, National Grid Carbon, CCS Technical Lead said: “This project is one of a number we are considering in our quest to assist the UK Government to meet its obligation to cut carbon emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.”

Wood Group Kenny will examine the costs of subsea pipelines and facilities, which they have experience in from their oil and gas business.
