Welltec, an international provider of robotic well solutions for the oil and gas industry, has opened its new test flow loop facility in Esbjerg, which will provide essential corrosion testing for numerous carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, enabling the company to play an even bigger role in the energy transition in Denmark.

The newly constructed system replicates extreme environmental conditions, and ensures that materials have the required durability and wear resistance for their intended use.

One of the projects that will utilise the test loop is Project Greensand which has the potential of storing up to 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year by the end of 2025, and up to 8 million tonnes of CO2 per year by 2030.

The group behind Project Greensand consists of 23 different Danish and international partners who all work to deliver a significant contribution to the green transition in Denmark. Welltec will play a key role in Project Greensand to identify optimal materials and undertake corrosion testing utilising the new test capability.

Peter Hansen, CEO of Welltec, says: ‘Since Welltec was founded, we have continued to evolve our service and product offering in line with technology developments and availability. The investments made in this new test facility, and the commitment made to our New Energy and Climate Technology organisation, represent a new evolution in line with our industry.’
