Harbour Energy’s Viking CCS carbon transport and storage network, has opened the statutory consultation process for a Development Consent Order (DCO) for its onshore pipeline.
The Viking CCS onshore pipeline will allow captured carbon from the Immingham industrial area to be transported for 55 kilometers to the former Theddlethorpe Gas Terminal on the Lincolnshire coast. The carbon dioxide will then be transported 140 kilometers to the depleted Viking gas fields, 9,000 feet beneath the seabed, where it will be stored permanently.

The onshore pipeline is an important part of the infrastructure needed to decarbonize the industries of the Humber.
Harbour Energy, which is the project developer for the Viking CCS pipeline, has begun consultation with local stakeholders through public events earlier this year as part of the non-statutory consultation process.
The pipeline aims to submit a planning application for the onshore pipeline during the first six months of 2023. Starting construction is planned for 2025, and completion and start-up could potentially happen in 2027.
