October 18, 2022 [Tank Store Mag] – Wintershall Dea and HES Wilhelmshaven Tank Terminal have signed an MoU to jointly develop CO2nnectNow, a CO₂ hub at HES Wilhelmshaven Tank Terminal.

 

It is expected that CO₂, which cannot be avoided in the industrial process, will be captured from German industrial sites and transported to the planned CO₂nnectNow hub.

From there, the CO₂ will first be shipped, later transported via pipeline, from Germany’s only deep-water port to geological formations in the Norwegian and Danish North Sea to be permanently and safely stored.

HES Wilhelmshaven Tank Terminal was selected as the home for CO₂nnectNow due to its strategic location, deep draft quay, and extensive industrial and rail infrastructure. A study has been launched to determine the feasibility of the project, with its results expected to be received in 2023.

In May 2022, Wintershall Dea, Europe’s leading independent gas and oil company, presented BlueHyNow, a planned project to produce large quantities of hydrogen from natural gas in Wilhelmshaven. It is expected that the CO₂ generated by BlueHyNow will also be captured and collected at CO₂nnectNow.

Wintershall Dea has recently announced a partnership with Equinor aiming to connect Germany and Norway via a 900-kilometre CO₂-pipeline. The pipeline is estimated to have an annual capacity of up to 40 million tonnes by 2032 and will enable the safe transportation of CO₂ from the German coast to the Norwegian North Sea.

“Only with CCS, Germany can achieve its climate targets. The North Sea, especially Norway and Denmark, offers enormous potential and Wilhelmshaven is perfectly located in Northern Germany. We are delighted to have found an experienced and locally rooted partner in HES to mature our CO₂nnectNow project,” said Klaus Langemann, senior vice president, carbon management & hydrogen, at Wintershall Dea.
