The Acorn Project is a carbon capture and storage project specifically designed to overcome one of the acknowledged blockers to CCS deployment in the UK – the high capital costs involved in getting started. Based at the St Fergus gas terminal in Northeast Scotland, Acorn CCS can repurpose existing gas pipelines to take CO2 directly to the Acorn CO2 Storage Site. With this important pipeline infrastructure already in place, Acorn CCS can get started using existing CO2 emissions– captured directly from the gas processing units at the St Fergus gas terminal.
