PETRONAS and Shell collaborate on CCS solutions

Jan 11 2022


The companies have signed a Joint Study and Collaboration Agreement (JSCA) to explore opportunities and project collaborations in Malaysia and the region.

Under the JSCA, PETRONAS and Shell will perform an integrated CCS Area Development Plan study to support the decarbonisation ambitions of both parties within selected locations offshore Sarawak. The scope of the agreement includes exploring the provision of decarbonisation service to Shell’s local and cross-border facilities, as well as to other potential regional customers. The outcome of the study will produce options in potential areas for further collaboration. 

Signing the agreement on behalf of PETRONAS was its Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of Upstream, Adif Zulkifli, while Shell was represented by its Malaysia Chairman and Senior Vice President of Upstream Malaysia, Ivan Tan.

Adif said, “PETRONAS has a long-standing partnership with Shell. We are confident that this latest collaboration will inspire more innovation towards managing carbon emissions and advancing our shared ambition of delivering energy solutions in a responsible and sustainable manner.

“This collaboration underscores PETRONAS’ continuous efforts to explore partnership opportunities in CCS. We will continue this trajectory to unlock opportunities which could potentially help reduce emissions and achieve our net zero carbon emissions aspirations. This is one of the many efforts to position and establish Malaysia as a leading CCS solutions hub in the region,” he added.

Last November, PETRONAS signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc. to explore opportunities in CCS technologies to support the decarbonisation of Malaysia’s upstream industry as well as to provide CO2 storage solutions for the region.

In December, an MoU was signed with POSCO International Corporation and POSCO Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd to assess for opportunities to unlock CCS potential and identify suitable technology within the scope of carbon capture, transportation of CO2 and storage for potential application.
