Schlumberger DELFI Digital Platform Selected by Northern Lights JV for CO2 Project
The Northern Lights joint venture between Equinor, Shell, and TotalEnergies will use the DELFI environment to optimize performance in carbon transport and storage
For CO2 transportation and storage, Schlumberger digital solutions are used for subsurface characterization and dynamic reservoir simulation, which are key to understanding storage site capacity and the potential for injecting and containing fluids. They are also used for development planning, operations, appraisals, and monitoring purposes.
“Northern Lights has recognized the huge potential of Schlumberger’s digital technology to fast-track decision making and de-risk CO2 transportation and storage operations,” comments
The DELFI environment gives instant access to CO2 transportation and storage technology subscriptions and plug-ins while also providing the ability to host other third-party applications, including seamless integration with the OSDU™ Data Platform. Its collection of petrotechnical applications and digital solutions will assist Northern Lights’ teams in planning and operational activities, enabling them to work together in a collaborative environment.
Northern Lights is part of Longship—Norway’s largest climate initiative—which comprises a full-scale Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project, covering capture, transport, and storage of CO2. Carbon capture operations are scheduled to start in 2024, with an annual capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year and the possibility to expand this with an additional 3.5 million tonnes. The
Schlumberger offers comprehensive industry-leading digital solutions to support complex multidisciplinary CO2 storage workflows, from process modeling on the capture and transportation side, through to subsurface studies and monitoring. The company’s experience with carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) spans over 20 years, with consulting and project implementation in CCUS projects worldwide.
