Errai plan to store 4-8 million tonnes of CO2 annually in the first development phase, potentially storing more in later phases. The project includes an onshore terminal for intermediate CO2 storage, with the intention to permanently store the CO2 in an offshore reservoir. With the current plans the Errai project will develop the second CO2 terminal in Norway.
The onshore terminal is designed to be capable of receiving CO2 from European and domestic customers, including from the planned CO2 terminal at the Port of Rotterdam. Several onshore locations in Southern Norway are being evaluated for the terminal.
The Errai project was initiated by Horisont Energi in 2021, and CO2 injections are expected to start by 2026. With this important agreement with Neptune Energy, Horisont Energi is now pursuing their second project development following the flagship project Barents Blue.
Neptune Energy has reinjected CO2 in the K12-B gas field in the Dutch North Sea for 14 years, as well as being a partner in the Norwegian Snøhvit field, which has been reinjecting CO2 since 2008. Neptune aims to store more carbon than is emitted from its operations and the use of its sold products globally by 2030.
