Wintershall Dea has made significant progress in its hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects in North-Western Europe, the company announced in a press release.

The company said that its CCS and hydrogen projects portfolio is a crucial part of executing its Energy Transition Pathway (ETP), which will help in setting its climate targets by itself.

By using hydrogen and CCS technologies, Wintershall Dea seeks to reduce its net carbon emissions including Scope 3 before 2030.

The company announced that last August it would use offshore CCS by 2025 at its Greensand project in Denmark. Additionally, Wintershall Dea is part of a consortium that is expected to show how carbon dioxide can be injected into the offshore Nini West Reservoir in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective fashion.

The company also has announced that it will cooperate with VNG AG to build a plant that will produce climate-friendly turquoise hydrogen, which will use the methane pyrolysis method as the first step.

In addition, Wintershall announced in September that it will work with the German OTH Regensburg University of Applied Sciences to explore the possibility of transporting carbon dioxide using the existing natural gas pipelines in the southern North Sea.
