JX石油開発株式会社、日本郵船株式会社及びその関連会社であるKnutsen NYK Carbon Carriers社(KNCC社)は、KNCC社の独自技術であるカーゴタンクシリンダー(cargo tank cylinders:CTC)を活用したCO2の液化・貯蔵を検討する。







Japanese consortium to study maritime CO2 liquefaction and storage processes


Published: 26 March 2024



A trio of Japanese companies have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) agreeing to study the optimisation of CO2 liquefaction storage

JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration Corp, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) Group and its affiliate Knutsen NYK Carbon Carriers (KNCC) will study CO2 liquefaction storage using KNCC’s proprietary technology cargo tank cylinders (CTC).

This study aims to optimise the CO2 transport system using CTC by utilising the characteristics of the elevated pressure method, which stores and transports liquefied CO2 at higher temperatures and pressures than the low-pressure and medium-pressure methods.

The partners said they hope the study can help solve the problems in the CCUS value chain, such as capital investment, energy consumption and environmental impact. The three companies will conduct optimisation verification by the latter half of the year using CTC’s demonstration facility ’test rig’ owned by KNCC in Norway.

Partnering with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, NYK Line has helped to jointly develop the design of a large LCO2 carrier which received an AiP from ClassNK earlier this year.

And earlier this month, the Japanese conglomerate participated in a seminar comparing three modes of the CCUS value chain. The seminar was hosted by the Global CCS Institute.
