TechnipFMC and Talos Energy enter strategic CCS alliance
TechnipFMC and Talos Energy have entered into a long-term strategic alliance to develop and deliver technical and commercial solutions to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) projects along the United States Gulf Coast. The alliance combines Talos’s offshore operational strength and sub-surface expertise with TechnipFMC’s extended history in subsea engineering, system integration and automation and control.
Cultivated through a shared vision to responsibly deliver CCS solutions that will help to reduce the global carbon footprint, this partnership will accelerate offshore CCS adoption with reliable, specialised CCS systems. Under the alliance, the companies will collaborate to progress CCS opportunities through the full lifecycle of storage site characterisation, front-end engineering and design (FEED), and first injection through life of field operations. This further advances the companies’ leadership in the emerging Gulf Coast CCS market, building on Talos’s recent successful award as the operator of the only major offshore carbon sequestration hub in the US.
Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, comments, “We are pleased to partner with Talos to deliver offshore CCS solutions that will help reduce CO2 emissions during the energy transition. This alliance capitalises on our collective expertise and TechnipFMC’s position as a system integrator and architect to deliver a reliable industrial-scale solution for CCS.” Bob Abendschein, Executive Vice President and Head of Operations at Talos, adds, “We are excited to announce this strategic alliance with TechnipFMC and to work collaboratively as we continue to execute on our strategy to scale our CCS business. Combining the technical expertise of both companies solidifies our market leadership in delivering integrated CCS solutions to lower industrial carbon emissions and create a positive impact in the communities where we work and live.”
