”A big day for everyone involved in Project Greensand,” says Project Director Søren Reinhold Poulsen overseeing the carbon capture and storage project

His statement alludes to the fact that rig Noble Resolve is headed towards the Nini Vest field in the North Sea to initiate the first batch of CO2 storage in the North Sea subsoil.

The Greensand team confirms the news in a press release.

Over the past few weeks, Noble Resolve has been berthed at the Port of Esbjerg while Noble and partner Semco installed and upgraded the rig’s pumping, heating and electric installations. During this same period, Blue Water’s vessel Aurora Storm sailed for Esbjerg from Antwerp with 40 containers full of liquefied CO2.

The Greensand project aspires to store 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 in 2025 and 8 million tonnes of CO2 in 2030.
