Adnoc announced on 6 September that it has take a final investment decision (FID) on a 1.5mn t/y carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) project at its gas processing hub at Habshan. The project will nearly triple Adnoc’s carbon capture capacity from 800,000 t/y to 2.3mn t/y, and is due to be completed in 2026.

The facility will be built, operated and maintained by Adnoc Gas on behalf of Adnoc. It will include carbon capture units at the Habshan gas processing plant (MEES, 7 July), pipeline infrastructure, and a network of wells for CO₂ injection. Unlike Adnoc’s existing Al Reyadah carbon capture project, which injects the CO₂ into the Bab and Rumaitha oil fields to boost production, CO₂ from the Habshan project “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.” (CONTINUED - 336 WORDS)
