SUMMARY

Consortium including Chevron, Keppel Infrastructure and PetroChina will study utilization and storage solutions.

By Dale Lunan

Air Liquide Group said September 21 it would lead a consortium of US major Chevron, Keppel Infrastructure and PetroChina to evaluate and advance carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) in Singapore.

The consortium will research, test and develop technological, logistical and operational solutions for CCUS with the aim of developing industry-wide infrastructure primarily to support the energy and chemicals sectors but also to capture, utilise or store CO2 emissions from large industrial emitters.

Captured carbon would either be used to make products or transported by pipeline or ship to suitable reservoirs in the Asia Pacific region for geologic sequestration.

“Supporting the decarbonisation of industry to help address the urgency of climate change is a priority,” said Michele Gritti, large industries and energy transition for Air Liquide’s Southeast Asia cluster. “We are pleased to collaborate with Keppel Infrastructure, Chevron, and PetroChina in this decarbonisation endeavor, leveraging our expertise and experience in carbon capture, purification, and liquefaction to build a comprehensive carbon capture decarbonisation solution.”
