We help energy intensive businesses reduce their carbon emissions

We want to capture carbon dioxide, compress it, transport it offshore and permanently store it deep underground, forever removing it from the atmosphere.

Using carbon reduction and removal technology solutions, we can help solve the issue of rising carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and bridge the gap between fossil fuels and renewable energy.

Our projects

Capture

Carbon dioxide can be captured at its source (before it reaches the atmosphere) or directly from the air (direct air capture).

Storegga works with organisations to support them towards reduced, net zero or even negative carbon emissions through carbon capture and carbon removal technology as well as the provision of low carbon hydrogen.

Transport

Captured CO₂ needs to be transported to a permanent storage location offshore deep below the seabed.

If the storage site is located near the emissions sources, dedicated local pipelines or hauliers can transport CO₂ to the offshore pipeline connection point. CO₂ from further afield can be transported via ship to a deep water port near the offshore pipeline connection point. It is then sent by pipeline to the deep underground store by an existing offshore pipeline. Direct air capture plants will also be developed, where possible, in the vicinity of the entry point to the CO₂ storage reservoir pipeline.

Storage

Access to significant, secure geological storage is fundamental to the Storegga business model, starting with our flagship project, Acorn, in North East Scotland.

Today, just 40 million tonnes of CO₂ a year are stored globally. The UK alone emits approximately
360 million tonnes a year of CO₂ , meaning current storage levels are just a fraction of what is required. Some predict that five gigatons (that’s a billion tonnes) of CO₂ storage will be required globally by 2050, meaning the world will need about 2,000 CCS projects to be operating efficiently and safely, and at scale, by the middle of this century.

STOREGGA WILL ENABLE INDUSTRIES, BUSINESSES AND GOVERNMENTS TO ACHIEVE NET ZERO

Carbon removal through carbon capture and storage

To achieve net zero, carbon capture and storage (CCS) will be required to remove CO2 from a wide range of emission sources, including from hard to abate sectors such as petrochemicals, agriculture and airlines.

Carbon reduction through low-carbon hydrogen production

In a net zero world, hydrogen will be required to fuel sectors which are difficult to decarbonise in other ways such as transport, heavy industry and heat.

Storegga is an independent company that is solely focused on carbon reduction and removal. Storegga is identifying arising infrastructure opportunities for CO2 transport and storage at an early stage. Funded by GIC, Macquarie Group and Mitsui & Co, it is making low carbon technologies investible to private capital.

Our first project, Acorn, is a key project positioning the UK as a global leader in CCS. In partnership with Shell and Harbour Energy, and with support from the UK and Scottish Governments and the European Commission, we are expecting to meet our target of storing at least 5 million tonnes of carbon per year by 2030. This would meet half of the UK Government’s emissions reduction target alone.
