EU invests €1 billion in priority energy infrastructure

Oct 04 2020


The funding comes from the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme, the EU's financial mechanism for trans-European infrastructure, and includes several CCS projects.

For the first time, the construction of a CO2 infrastructure project will be funded. €102 million is awarded to the Porthos CO2 transport network project aiming to develop an open access cross-border network for the transport of CO2 from industrial sources in three of Europe’s main ports - Rotterdam, Antwerp and North Sea Port - to offshore storage locations in the North Sea.

The full list of supported CO2 projects are:

  • CO2-Sapling Transport and Infrastructure Project (United Kingdom,in further phases Netherlands, Norway)

Cross-Border Pre-Project Engineering for Acorn CO2- SAPLING Transport and Infrastructure Project

  • CO2 TransPorts: infrastructure for large-scale capture, transport and storage of CO2 from Rotterdam, Antwerp and North Sea Port

PORTHOS CO2 transport network

  • CO2 TransPorts: infrastructure for large-scale capture, transport and storage of CO2 from Rotterdam, Antwerp and North Sea Port

Antwerp CO2 Collection Network and Cross-border Pipeline - Studies

  • Northern lights project – a commercial CO2 cross-border transport connection project between several European capture initiatives (United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden) and transport the captured CO2 by ship to a storage site on the Norwegian continental shelf

Antwerp Liquid CO2 Export Terminal Studies

  • Amsterdam-IJmuiden CO2 Transport Hub & Offshore Storage 

Athos 

  • Ervia Cork Carbon Capture Utilisation & Storage (CCUS) Project

Pre-FEED study to facilitate rapid implementation and delivery of the Cork CCUS PCI
