CMC Research Institutes and bp announce agreement that will streamline CCUS integration

CMC Research Institutes is thrilled to announce that energy company bp has signed an agreement to join the research program at the Containment and Monitoring Institute’s (CaMI) Field Research Station.

As a member of CaMI’s Joint Industry Project, bp will have the opportunity to help cultivate its strategy of pivoting to become an integrated energy company with an ambition of being a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner.

“Working with bp offers us the ability to bolster and develop CaMI’s programs and services. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic to work alongside them as we merge carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) implementation across industry.

“The CaMI team comprises a broad, dedicated group of experts who are committed to providing support, resources and knowledge and to support bp as it works to deliver on its ambition,” says Don Lawton, Director of CaMI.

“Our ambition is to become a net zero energy company by 2050 or sooner and to help the world to get to net zero. CCUS will undoubtedly play a significant role in helping us achieve our ambitions and aims.  The challenge for CCUS is now to accelerate its deployment towards gigatonne levels of reductions in carbon emissions globally. During this process we look to work with outstanding research groups like CaMI to help ensure that this is done in a safe, secure and reliable way,” said Tony Espie, Advisor on CO2 Storage at bp.
