ADNOC makes carbon capture investment decision

ADNOC has made a final investment decision (FID) to develop one of the largest carbon capture projects in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The Habshan carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) project will have the capacity to capture and store 1.5 million tpy of carbon dioxide (CO2) within geological formations deep underground.
The announcement is part of ADNOC’s wider carbon management strategy, which aims to create a unique platform that connects all the sources of emissions and sequestration sites to accelerate the delivery of ADNOC and the UAE’s decarbonisation goals.
As part of this strategy, the company is implementing several innovative, technology driven pilot projects, including CO2 mineralisation and full carbon sequestration in saline aquifers.
The project will triple ADNOC’s carbon capture capacity to 2.3 million tpy, equivalent to removing over 500 000 gasoline-powered cars from the road per year. The project, to be built, operated and maintained by ADNOC Gas on behalf of ADNOC, will include carbon capture units at the Habshan gas processing plant, pipeline infrastructure, and a network of wells for CO2 injection.
Musabbeh Al Kaabi, ADNOC executive director of low carbon solutions and international growth, said: “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has stated that CCS is a critical enabler for the world to achieve net zero by mid-century. This landmark project, is one of many tangible initiatives that ADNOC is delivering as we accelerate our decarbonisation plan to meet our net zero by 2045 ambition.”
In 2016, ADNOC opened its first carbon capture, transportation and storage facility at Al Reyadah in Abu Dhabi. The facility has the capacity to process up to 800 000 tpy of CO2 captured at Emirates Steel Arkan.
