Rotterdam’s plan to store CO2 deep beneath the North Sea

Rotterdam - Together with the European gas infrastructure company Gasunie and with the Dutch gas and oil State company EBN, the Port of Rotterdam Authority is preparing a Carbon Capture Usage and Storage project, CCUS, in which CO2 from industry will be transported to storage sites in depleted gas fields deep beneath the North Sea seabed.

The three companies are working together on the preparation of this project under the name Porthos: Port of Rotterdam CO2 Transport Hub & Offshore Storage.

The Porthos project is being developed as an open access transport and storage infrastructure which can be used by multiple parties to store CO2. A so-called Expression of Interest process has been launched in order to obtain a clear picture of which companies are interested to become a customer, and when and how much CO₂ they are willing and able to supply. Companies can express their interest before 1 April 2019.
