INTOG - Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas decarbonisation

01 Sep 2021: Floating wind is particularly suited to the deep waters in the vicinity of Scottish O&G infrastructure. The North Sea Transition deal outlined by government and industry in March 2021 outlines the potential of carbon capture and storage, power from shore and offshore wind as decarbonation options for brownfield and greenfield O&G sites. The consultation is proposing a 4GW total development cap for O&G transition projects, which includes allowances for attrition and changes in site power density during development. The process will differ from ScotWind however; developers will be able to apply for sites during the INTOG SMP process rather than awaiting completion. Note that any sites included in the final plan will still require necessary consents. Proposed projects should be either; I. <100 MW test and demonstration projects. Up to 500MW of innovation or test and demonstration projects, which must be <100MW in size, will be awarded. Proposals can be outside the Areas of Search but must not be located within the areas marked as prohibited II. >100 MW O&G transition projects. Up to 4GW of O&G transition projects will be awarded, in alignment with the estimated current and future O&G demands. O&G projects may be >100MW and must provide electricity to decarbonise the platform, or O&G production. Production of hydrogen or e-fuels may be a component but cannot be the primary purpose.
