Elengy, SPSE seek expressions of interest in Rhone CCS hub

June 4, 2024
Elengy and Societe du Pipeline Sud-Europeen have called for expressions of interest in development of a CO2 transport network.

Elengy SA and Societe du Pipeline Sud-Europeen (SPSE) have called for expressions of interest in development of a CO2 transport network, linking industrial sites in the Rhone Valley to an export terminal at Fos-su-Mer, France.  The project, Rhone CO2, would set up a carbon capture and storage (CCS) hub in one of France's most industrialized regions, with a 2027 final investment decision targeted to meet a 2030 in-service date.  

Parts of both SPSE’s pipeline assets and Elengy’s existing Fos Tonkin LNG terminal at Fos-sur-Mer could be repurposed to accelerate the project, the companies said. SPSE has 2.26 million cu m of storage at Fos-sur-Mer.

The companies are also contemplating the production of synthetic fuels as part of Rhone CO2.
