CCS Project

Prinos CCS

The project aims to convert the mature Prinos oilfield in Greece into a CO2 storage facility. If approved by the Greek government, the project would be the first of its kind in the Mediterranean region. The Prinos oil field could provide permanent storage of CO2 captured from local emission sources (up to 150 km away) and piped to the facility. For the more distant emission sources, CO2 could be liquified and shipped to an intermediate storage facility onshore (Sigma Site), before being injected for offshore storage to Prinos oilfield.
