GETECH, a geonergy and inexperienced hydrogen firm, is contracted to deploy geospatial software and subsurface expertise supporting the UK’s initial carbon storage licensing round.
Doing work with the North Sea Changeover Authority (NSTA) Getech has used its exploration analyst software to leverage NSTA’s in-property details.

“Placing the desire for our carbon storage presenting in a worldwide context, 130 new commercial-scale CO2 capture assignments were being announced in 2021, with the Intercontinental Electricity Agency forecasting that the capital investing could exceed US$40bn by 2024 (from US$1.8bn in 2021).
“The earth nonetheless need to find and produce a more 700 carbon storage initiatives at this scale by 2030 to continue to be on track for the IEA’s 2050 Internet Zero Emission Situation.
“In move with the promptly growing energy transition markets, we glimpse forward to scaling the deployment of our products and solutions, which we are also employing to locate, establish and function our individual job investments.”
