Northern Lights cross-border, open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure network has selected Schlumberger’s Delfi platform to optimize the CO2 storage and workflow.
The digital platform facilitates the streamline subsurface operations, modeling, and surveillance of the carbon dioxide sequestration. Delfi is a collaborative technology that seamlessly connects people, data and leading software applications across exploration, development, drilling, production, and midstream.
Schlumberger’s solution is also used for subsurface characterization and dynamic reservoir simulation, which are key to understanding storage site capacity and the potential for injecting and containing fluids.
“Northern Lights has recognized the huge potential of Schlumberger’s digital technology to fast-track decision making and de-risk CO2 transportation and storage operations,” said Rajeev Sonthalia, president of Digital & Integration at Schlumberger.
He also added that the platform achieves high degrees of automation and autonomy in data analytics and operational processes which could help Northern Lights raise its operational efficiency and performance through the power of AI and high-performance computing.
Northern Lights carbon capture project is a collaboration between Equinor, Shell, and TotalEnergies aiming to offer European industrial emitters the opportunity to store their CO2 underground. Every company can take part in the initiative and agree for its emissions to be captured and linked to the infrastructure for permanent storage.
Other companies like Summit Carbon Solutions are also developing similar projects to decarbonize multiple industrial sites. Decarbonization projects of common interest are a key to countries’ efforts to achieve their energy and climate objectives.
