HyNet North West project in Liverpool Bay, UK, has awarded Halliburton Co. a contract to provide well completions, liners, and monitoring products and services for the project’s CCS system.

HyNet North West project in Liverpool Bay, UK, has awarded Halliburton Co. a contract to provide well completions, liners, and monitoring products and services for the project’s carbon capture and storage (CCS) system.

HyNet is designed to store 10 million tonnes/year (tpy) of CO2 and produce 4 Gw of low-carbon hydrogen by 2030. Eni UK last year signed MOU with 19 companies to capture, transport, and store  emissions in depleted Eni UK reservoirs as part of the project (OGJ Online, Feb. 9, 2022).

Earlier this year, five HyNet partners—Hanson Cement, Viridor, Encyclis, Buxton Lime Zero (Tarmac), and Vertex Hydrogen—were approved by the UK government to move forward to the next stage of decarbonization negotiations. HyNet says the five combined would remove about 3 million tpy of CO2.

Halliburton describes HyNet as the first CCS project commissioned in the UK. It will manufacture and deliver equipment from its UK completion manufacturing center in Arbroath.
