PDO, Global CCS Institute Sign Joint Programme for Carbon Capture and Storage

Dubai: A joint programme for carbon capture and storage was signed today by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute (Global CCS Institute).

The signing ceremony took place in the Sultanate of Oman’s pavilion at COP28 climate summit in Dubai.

The cooperation programme seeks to provide technical support for the development of policies and regulatory directives pertaining to the technology of capturing, transporting, storing and using and storing carbon dioxide in the Sultanate of Oman.

The step was taken in pursuance of efforts undertaken by the Sultanate of Oman—represented by the Ministry of Energy and Minerals—to cut down carbon emissions. It constitutes part of a project to prepare the structural framework for blue hydrogen and technologies for capturing, transporting and storing carbon dioxide. The project is undertaken in partnership with energy firms interested in these technologies in Oman.

Global CCS Institute, is an international research institution that aims to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), a vital technology to deliver carbon neutrality, use the institute’s technical expertise and develop policies and regulatory guidance on the best ways to harness opportunities and technologies for capturing, transporting and storing carbon dioxide.

The programme is aimed at realizing Oman’s strategy for an orderly transition to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.  -ONA
