Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a mechanism by which waste carbon dioxide, which is produced as a by-product of burning fossil fuels, is captured and transported to a storage site in order to prevent it from entering the atmosphere and contributing to climate change.
The NOC offers scientific expertise and innovative solutions from site selection to site development. We also seek partners around the development and supply of cost effective and autonomous solutions for monitoring the integrity of CCS sites.
The NOC can provide:
- Expert subsea geological knowledge and scientific expertise
- Access to autonomous underwater vehicles, which aid in both site selection (using bubble detection and chemical sensing), monitoring of site integrity and maintenance, at a fraction of the cost of using ships
- Ecological and environmental expertise and environmental impact assessments
