DNV Qualifies Aker’s Offshore Carbon Capture Solution


Energy expert and assurance provider DNV has successfully qualified Norway-based Aker Carbon Capture (Aker)’s modularised carbon capture facility designed for deployment in offshore oil and gas fields, reports Cision News.

‘Indispensable’ role that carbon capture and storage

The Just Catch Offshore facility aims to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated through oil and gas production. According to Statistics Norway, the oil and gas industry accounted for 25% of the country’s total emissions in 2021.

In its recently published its Energy Transition Outlook report, DNV outlined the ‘indispensable’ role that carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology will play in reducing global carbon emissions.

We are pleased to provide validation of the technology in a frontier application area – power generation in the offshore sector,” said Jorg Aarners, Global Lead, Hydrogen and CCS, Energy Systems at DNV.

DNV has validated that Aker Carbon Capture’s modular technology Just Catch Offshore can capture CO2 from flue gas stemming from turbines on floating offshore installations.”

Just Catch Offshore

Having been in development since 2018, Just Catch Offshore is designed to fit into any type of application where gas turbines are present. According to Aker, this includes bottom fixed as well as floating production facilities, such as FPSOs, FLNG (floating liquefied natural gas), power hubs and offshore power gas plants.

The design consists of two standard units of 120 and 180 kTPA (kilo tonnes per annum) configured and installed into one module, although the units can be combined to increased capacity.

The CCS module will typically be prefabricated and be made mechanically complete before lifted onboard onto the host facility at the integration yard for further hook-up to the gas turbine stacks, with a delivery time of 20-24 months,” commented Jim Stian Olsen, CTO at Aker Carbon Capture.

Aker’s offshore solution has benefitted from development of its onshore-based Just Catch EPC project for Twence’s waste-to-energy facility in Hengelo, the Netherlands.
