Port of Rotterdam moves on with liquid CO2 terminal

Posted on June 12, 2024

The CO2next project, aimed at constructing a liquid CO2 terminal in Rotterdam’s port, has progressed to the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase, reaching a significant milestone.

As informed, Sener has been awarded the FEED contract to further define the terminal’s design, schedule, and costs, with a Final Investment Decision (FID) planned for 2025. This terminal, part of the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) chain, will connect to the Aramis CCS project and serve as critical infrastructure for industries seeking to reduce carbon emissions.

The terminal’s strategic location in Maasvlakte, Rotterdam, with access to the Yangtze Canal, enables it to handle liquid CO2 shipments and connect to North Sea gas fields for storage.

Potential customers have shown interest, with a launch capacity of 5.4 Mtpa and potential expansion based on market demand and CCS chain development.

Commercial operations are projected to start in 2028, pending relevant permits. Shell and TotalEnergies have joined the project, previously led by Gasunie and Vopak, aiming to enable decarbonization in industries reliant on CCS.

Clearance processes are underway, reinforcing the project’s commitment to regulatory compliance and collaborative progress toward a sustainable future.

We are pleased to see the CO2next project firming up. Carbon Capture and Storage is recognised as required to enable the decarbonisation of the hard to abate industries and we see a clear role for such a liquid CO2 terminal in the European CO2 infrastructure.
