ADNOC has made a final investment decision (FID) to develop the Habshan carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project in Abu Dhabi.

The project will include carbon capture units at the Habshan gas processing plant, pipeline infrastructure, and a network of wells for CO2 injection (OGJ Online, June 30, 2023). As part of ADNOC’s ongoing decarbonization efforts, CO2 will be permanently stored in reservoirs deep in the sub-surface through the deployment of closed-loop CO2 capture and reinjection technology at the well site, the company said.

Habshan will have the capacity to capture and permanently store 1.5 million tonnes/year (tpy) of CO2 within geological formations deep underground and will triple ADNOC’s carbon capture capacity to 2.3 million tpy, ADNOC said.

FID to develop the project aligns with ADNOC’s recently announced Net Zero by 2045 ambition and forms part of the company’s initial $15 billion decarbonization investment in low carbon solutions.

In 2016, ADNOC opened its first carbon capture, transportation, and storage facility at Al Reyadah in Abu Dhabi. The infrastructure has capacity to process up to 800,000 tpy of CO2 captured at Emirates Steel Arkan.

ADNOC Gas will build and operate Habshan.
