Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy are all now equal partners in one of the UK’s most mature carbon capture and hydrogen developments, the Acorn Project.
Located in Scotland, the Acorn carbon capture and hydrogen projects could provide critical infrastructure and help industries and homes across Scotland and the UK to decarbonise.

The Acorn Project will also take North Sea natural gas and reform it into clean-burning hydrogen, with the associated CO2 emissions safely captured and stored under the sea at the licensed Acorn CO2 Storage Site.
Such operations could be underway by the middle of the decade, supporting industrial, power, mobility and domestic customers in North East Scotland and beyond through transportation within the natural gas system.
Now, as equal partners, Storegga, Shell and Harbour will develop Acorn through to final investment decision, construction, operation and beyond.
“Safely and securely managing and removing the emissions of industry and society is our core business, this agreement cements our relationship with our industry partners, Shell and Harbour Energy, and allows us to look forward with confidence to the next few years as we race to tackle climate change in a way that’s sustainable, cost efficient and deliverable,” said Nick Cooper, CEO of Storegga.
