TES and OGE Combine to Develop 1000 km CO2 Transport Network

OGE, one of the leading European gas transmission system operators, is planning to build a CO2 pipeline system. The project will focus on CO2 emissions that cannot be avoided during production processes and on the reuse of CO2 in a green circular system to import green hydrogen. This pipeline system will initially be 1,000 km long and will allow around 18 million tonnes of CO2 to be shipped per year.

To prioritize the provision of green energy while reducing CO2, OGE and Tree Energy Solutions (TES), which recently announced a green energy hub for importing green gas into Wilhemshaven, Germany, entered a strategic partnership for a CO2 circular economy.

The pipeline network, starting from the green gas import terminal to be built by TES in Wilhelmshaven, will integrate important industrial, power and mobility locations around Germany. The commissioning of the first part of the network is expected from 2028.

“To achieve our climate targets, we must invest in renewable energies and above all hydrogen but also offer a solution to industries in Germany that need to capture and utilize their CO2 emissions,” Dr Jörg Bergmann, CEO of OGE, says. “This requires a CO2 infrastructure. We will offer these to all interested parties openly and at standardised conditions.”

OGE and TES are in conversation with German steel producers, cement/ lime producers, power plant operators and chemical plant operators to transport CO2 via the new pipeline back to the future Wilhelmshaven green energy hub. Right from the start, the transport network will be equally open to other market participants.

“The CO2 pipeline network supports the closed-loop circularity strategy, ensuring that CO2 can be kept within the TES cycle and GHG emissions are avoided,” Paul van Poecke, Founder and Managing Director at TES, says. “Via this project, the CO2 will be captured and re-used in a circular closed-loop system as a carrier to transport green hydrogen or as a resource in other industries.”

The carbon cycle strategy will significantly accelerate the energy transition in Germany and help the industry, power and mobility, sectors to achieve their decarbonization targets. This requires a Germany-wide CO2 strategy and corresponding instruments.
