Halliburton Company today announced Energean plc awarded it a study to assess carbon storage potential of the Prinos basin in Greece.
Study to deliver comprehensive subsurface review for suitability of Carbon Capture Storage
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – HOUSTON – March 23, 2022 – Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL) today announced Energean plc (LSE: ENOG, TASE: אנאג), an independent E&P company focused on developing resources in the Mediterranean and the North Sea, awarded it a study to assess carbon storage potential of the Prinos basin in Greece.
Halliburton carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) experts will collaborate with Energean to evaluate the Prinos area’s carbon dioxide (CO2) storage complex. The scope of work will include long-term plume modeling, characterizing the storage complex, and a conceptual development plan with performance modelling. Additionally, Halliburton will deploy a fully integrated CO2 storage workflow leveraging DecisionSpace 365® cloud applications including Permedia® CO2 software, the World Petroleum Congress excellence award winner.
“We are excited to build on our strong relationship with Energean and to collaborate on this exciting carbon storage subsurface study where we will utilize Energean’s deep local understanding of the Prinos areas and Halliburton’s comprehensive carbon storage knowledge” said Martin White, vice president of Halliburton Europe, Eurasia and Sub-Saharan Africa. “This project will be the first end-to-end CCS subsurface evaluation collaboration between an operator and energy services provider in Europe, and we look forward to supporting Energean’s energy transition journey.”
“We are excited to collaborate in this landmark project with Halliburton,” said Katerina Sardi, Energean Managing Director and Country Manager in Greece. “Prinos has been identified as an ideal location to host a CO2 Storage plant with a potential storage capacity adequate to store about 100% of the emissions of the Greek manufacturing sector for a period of 10 years, starting from 2025. Halliburton’s unique know-how and acquaintance with Prinos ensures strong project collaboration and provides the basis for the successful implementation of a project that is core to Energean’s path to net zero”.
The work on the Prinos carbon storage subsurface study began in early March.
