|Abstract||This report describes the market for flexible pipes which are capable of transporting CO2 and the barriers which the company NKT Flexibles (NKTF) will have to overcome in order to enter this market.
Since clients have contacted the flexible pipe manufacturer NKTF requesting a pipe which can transport CO2, NKTF has started the development and qualification of such a pipe. The extent of the market and the barriers which NKT Flexibles will need to overcome are analyzed in this report. The four scenarios where the pipe is expected to be an option are enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) where CO2 is injected into an oil/gas field in order to recover more oil, re-injection where CO2 is re-injected into the field in order to avoid releasing it to the atmosphere, carbon capture and storage (CCS) where CO2 will be captured and stored in the underground and ultra deep water where the oil contains a large amount of CO2. These scenarios have been analyzed regarding the probability of the employment of the scenarios offshore in the future, since they are all new technologies. Furthermore, a technical analysis has been carried out in order to define if NKTF is overcoming the technical challenges and addressing the clients’ concerns for a pipe for transport of CO2.
The analyses have been carried out by obtaining information from clients, experts, employees of NKTF, industry articles and research papers.
