We believe the Humber can be the UK’s first net zero SuperPlace, combining industrial-scale green energy generation and new CCS infrastructure to enable an industrial renaissance and new energy ecosystem. Viking CCS can deliver a material acceleration to this transition and cement the Humber’s position of first UK SuperPlace by 2030.
Located in the Humber region, the most industrialised and largest CO₂-emitting region in the UK, and offshore in the Southern North Sea, we are developing a high-quality, high-volume carbon, capture and storage (CCS) solution – Viking CCS.
Our solution brings together high demand for CCS and safe, cost-effective, high-quality, high-volume storage to meet that demand – so we can make a fast and substantial difference in helping the UK to reach its net zero targets by 2050, achieve energy security, and grow the economy.
Together with our members, we have created an end-to-end solution across the three key stages of CCS – capture, transportation and storage.
Helping the Humber region
The Humber is an essential centre of UK industry and we are here to help the region secure an investment-attracting low-carbon future.
up to 10000 jobs
potentially created from the capital investment by Viking CCS Cluster projects
10 million tonnes CO₂ captured per year by 2030
300 million tonnes of initial storage capacity
up to £ 7 billion
investment from 2025 to 2035 across the CCS value chain including capture and storage
over 50 %
of Humber emissions could be captured, transported and stored by our project
up to 40 %
of UK industrial and power emissions accessible via ABP’s network of ports
