Wintershell Dea, Germany’s largest crude oil and natural gas producer, and HES Wilhelmshaven Tank Terminal have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop CO2 nnectNow, a CO2 hub at Wilhelmshaven tank terminal.

CO2 produced during the industrial process will be captured from German industrial sites and transported to the planned CO2nnectNow hub. From there, the CO2 will first be shipped, later transported via pipeline, from Germany’s only deepwater port to geological formations in the Norwegian and Danish North Sea to be permanently and safely stored. This process is called carbon capture and storage (CCS) and will be key to decarbonisation in Germany.

‘Only with CCS, Germany can achieve its climate targets,’ says Klaus Langemann, senior vice president carbon management and hydrogen at Wintershall Dea. ‘The North Sea, especially Norway and Denmark, offers enormous potential and Wilhelmshaven is perfectly located in Northern Germany. We are delighted to have found an experienced and locally rooted partner in HES to mature our CO2 nnectNow project.’ Results on the of the feasibility of the new project are expected by 2023.
