TechnipFMC (FTI), NEP Join Forces for CCS Infrastructure

TechnipFMC plc FTI has been awarded a key contract by the Northern Endurance Partnership (“NEP”). This partnership, including industry giants like BP plc BP, Equinor ASA EQNR, and TotalEnergies SE TTE, is dedicated to establishing carbon dioxide transportation and storage infrastructure within the United Kingdom’s East Coast Cluster. This transformative work represents a significant leap forward in the global pursuit of sustainable energy solutions. BP, EQNR and TTE carry a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) each at present.

Pioneering All-Electric Integrated Project

FTI's selection to deliver NEP's first all-electric integrated project highlights its innovative prowess and commitment to driving environmental stewardship. Leveraging its integrated Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (iEPCI) model, TechnipFMC will lead the implementation of an unprecedented all-electric solution for carbon transportation and storage. 

Simplified Field Design and Enhanced Efficiency

The adoption of an all-electric system signifies a paradigm shift in CCS infrastructure design and implementation. By eliminating traditional hydraulic components and streamlining umbilicals, TechnipFMC’s innovative approach promises to revolutionize field design, reducing both infrastructure requirements and installation time. This streamlined methodology not only enhances operational efficiency but also facilitates the realization of CCS projects over extended distances.

Proprietary CO2.0 Technology: Redefining Industry Standards

Central to TechnipFMC’s work is its proprietary CO2.0 technology, a hallmark of the company's commitment to pushing the boundaries of innovation. By extending its renowned Subsea 2.0 platform to incorporate the industry's first all-electric system for carbon transportation and storage, TechnipFMC is at the vanguard of technological advancement in the energy sector.

Significance of the Milestone

Luana Duffé, executive vice president of New Energy at TechnipFMC, aptly characterizes the NEP project as a milestone for both the company and the broader industry. By seamlessly integrating CO2.0 technology with the development of an all-electric system, TechnipFMC highlights the key role of established energy competencies in driving the transition toward sustainable energy solutions.

Industry Leadership and Local Engagement

FTI’s leadership in the NEP project is further underlined by its strong local presence across the United Kingdom. As the project progresses toward final investment decisions and regulatory clearances, the company’s deep-rooted engagement with local stakeholders positions it as a catalyst for driving positive change within the energy landscape.

Future Outlook and Implications

The NEP project, propelled by TechnipFMC's innovative vision and technological expertise, holds immense potential for the future of CCS infrastructure development.
