CGG has announced a strategic partnership with Kent to work together on realising decarbonisation opportunities through carbon capture and storage (CCUS) development and hydrogen production and supply
CGG and Kent will be providing customers in the energy and industrial sectors with ‘end-to-end’ services across the life cycle of the projects. For example, from subsurface characterisation required for storage screening and evaluation to project engineering, planning, construction and commissioning, including late-life activities such as decommissioning and long-term monitoring, that include instrumentation and data management.
This collaboration brings the capability to masterplan entire CCUS clusters. CGG will deploy their world-leading capabilities for subsurface characterisation and subsurface risk analysis for CCUS and H2 projects as well as monitoring and instrumentation technologies for long-term monitoring and environmental assessment.
John Kent, chief energy transition officer, Kent, said, “By bringing our complementary capabilities together, we can help each other, and our customers, move at a faster pace on the energy transition journey. Working together is critical if we are going to decarbonise the sector fully - no one company or organisation can do it alone. So we at Kent are actively looking for partnerships such as these that facilitate information sharing and a faster transition to net-zero.”
Peter Whiting, executive vice-president, geoscience, CGG, added, “By capitalising on the capabilities of both companies we can bring to our customers a fully integrated view of their projects from the subsurface to the surface across the lifecycle of these projects. Kent and CGG both share the same commitment to playing an active role in the energy transition, and to service excellence, helping our clients to meet their net zero targets.”
