The Bonaparte CCS Assessment joint venture between TotalEnergies (26%), INPEX (53%, Operator) and Woodside (21%) has been awarded a Greenhouse Gas Storage Assessment Permit, off the northwest coast of Australia, to carry out evaluation and appraisal work on block G7-AP, which is considered a promising area for geological storage of CO2. Appraisal work will begin in 2023.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, TotalEnergies, stated: By enabling permanent CO2 sequestration in the region, this project complements existing solutions to avoid and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Ichthys LNG, a nearby natural gas liquefaction and export terminal that TotalEnergies (26%) is a founding partner. It is also fully consistent with TotalEnergies’ initiatives to promote and develop CCS (carbon capture and storage).

“This promising greenhouse gas storage assessment permit is fully in line with our strategy to provide more energy with lower emissions, and our ambition to achieve net zero by 2050, together with society.”

TotalEnergies aims to develop more than 10 Mt/year of carbon storage capacity by 2030, including storage for its facilities as well as storage services for its customers,” said Julien Pouget, Senior Vice President, TotalEnergies Asia-Pacific E&P & Renewables. “As a partner in both the Ichthys LNG and Bonaparte CCS Assessment joint ventures, TotalEnergies is well positioned to contribute to low carbon LNG production in Australia.”
