CO2 Infrastructure Project In Rotterdam Advances


CO2next is entering the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase of its project and has awarded the FEED contract to the engineering and technology group Sener.

Liquid CO2 terminal

CO2next aims to build a liquid CO2 terminal at the Maasvlakte in the Port of Rotterdam, that can be used by customers not connected to a CO2 pipeline to ship liquid CO2.

FEED phase

During the FEED phase the design, the realisation schedule, and the cost of the proposed CO2next terminal will be further defined, the relevant permits can be received and customers will be contracted in preparation for the Final Investment Decision (FID) currently planned for 2025.

Following the FID planned for 2025, subject to permits being granted by relevant authorities, the CO2next terminal is currently foreseen to commence commercial operations in 2028.

Shell and TotalEnergies have joined the development of the CO2next project, which to date was led by Gasunie and Vopak.
