Aker BP ASA completed the acquisition of a 3D seismic survey over the Poseidon CCS license area (license EXL005) in the Norwegian North Sea, about 100 km off the Norwegian coast.
The seismic acquisition campaign was carried out by PGS with the vessel Ramform Atlas. Covering more than 500 sq km, the campaign aimed to generate high-resolution imaging of the CO2 storage complex and to provide a baseline for monitoring of the storage integrity, the operator said in a release Oct. 18.
In March 2023, Aker BP ASA and OMV (Norge) AS were awarded the Poseidon license in accordance with the CO2 Storage Regulations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The license has a work program which includes a 3D seismic acquisition and related studies, followed by a drill-or-drop decision by May 2025 at the latest.
The license could potentially provide storage of more than 5 million tonnes/year of CO2, Aker BP said at the time of the license award. The intention is to inject CO2 captured from multiple identified industrial emitters in northwest Europe, including from Borealis’ various industrial sites, the operator said.
Poseidon is a 50/50 partnership, operated by Aker BP.
