CGG and Kent will provide services including subsurface characterization for storage screening and evaluation, project engineering, commissioning, construction and planning as well as late-stage activities, like decommissioning

Geoscience technology services firm CGG has entered into a strategic partnership with energy services engineering firm Kent to offer end-to-end services for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS)  development and hydrogen production and supply projects.

The firms will provide services including subsurface characterization for storage screening and evaluation, project engineering, commissioning, construction and planning as well as late-stage activities, like decommissioning.

CGG will bring its over 15 years of experience in supporting CCUS projects worldwide. It will offer its capabilities in subsurface characterization and risk analysis for CCUS and H2 projects and monitoring and instrumentation technologies for assessments. It has an extensive Earth Data library, with multi-client geology and seismic data that will enable clients to determine suitable storage locations at depleted oil and gas reservoirs and aquifers.

Kent will bring to the collaboration its experience working on more than 50 CCUS projects worldwide. It will work with CGG from wellhead to storage reservoir.

CGG’s EVP, Geoscience Peter Whiting said, “Our partnership with Kent will provide clients in energy and industrial sectors with the end-to-end solutions they need to achieve their energy transition goals with CCUS and H2 storage projects. By capitalizing on the capabilities of both companies we can bring to our customers a fully integrated view of their projects from the subsurface to the surface across the lifecycle of these projects. Kent and CGG both share the same commitment to playing an active role in the energy transition, and to service excellence, helping our clients to meet their net zero targets.”
