The project is being led by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Storegga Geotechnologies, Pale Blue Dot Energy, with support from Macquarie Group with a 21.5 pct shareholding and Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC with a 15.4 pct shareholding.
The project is expected to be operational by the mid-2020s and will capture 340,000 tpy of CO2 emissions. (Source: Mitsui, PR, OE, 3 Mar., 2021) Contact: Pale Blue Dot, Ian Phillips, Project Director, email@example.com, www.pale-blu.com; Mitsui & Co, www.mitsui-global.com

Project partners, including Chrysaor, Shell and Total, aim to reform North Sea natural gas into clean hydrogen, with carbon dioxide emissions safely mitigated through the carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure.
The Acorn project holds the first UK CO2 appraisal and storage licence to be awarded by the Oil and Gas Authority.

Costain will deliver concept design and front-end engineering design support for the project to repurpose Shell's Goldeneye pipeline and field to capture CO2 emissions while using some of the existing CO2 emissions at the St Fergus gas terminal (around 340,000 tonnes) in order to commission a very large scale CO2 transport and storage infrastructure that can support much larger future volumes.
Once this detailed engineering phase is complete Pale Blue Dot hopes to reach a final investment decision in late 2021.
The second phase will see full-scale production of hydrogen at a St Fergus production hub with waste CO2 pumped back into the depleted Goldeneye gas field.

The funding, which is part of a total
£26 million spread across nine UK projects aimed at accelerating the rollout of carbon capture technology as the island nation strives for net zero emissions by 2050,
will be used to pay for detailed design work on ACORN which, if approved for development, could be completed and commissioned in 2023-24.
The ACORN project
would use existing oil and gas infrastructure to store CO2 in depleted North Sea oil fields.

The SCCS is a 2005 vintage research and knowledge exchange partnership between Heriot-Watt University, the University of Aberdeen, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Strathclyde, and the British Geological Survey, intended to support the development of CCUS.
SCCS assisted in bringing Scottish experts to the ACT Acorn Project. Lead by energy consultants Pale Blue Dot Energy, the Acorn project is working to develop the UK's first operational carbon capture and storage (CCS) project.
