Alleima, formerly Sandvik Materials Technology, has been involved in a carbon capture project, further differentiating its applications in oil and gas.

Alleima and OCTG tubes for carbon capture

Alleima has received an order of Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) tubes to be used for a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project. Through this breakthrough order, Alleima enters a new market, which is an important milestone to drive profitable growth by capitalizing on the green transition. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the process of capturing CO2 from heavy industry and energy plants, transporting it, and storing it in underground geological formations. The aim is to prevent the release of CO2 and minimize the effects of climate change. The number of CCS fields in operation are currently limited but project announcements are increasing rapidly, as countries, and energy companies in particular, aim to meet 2050 net-zero target. The order that was received in the fourth quarter of 2022 relates to OCTG tubes in the material SAF 2507, which will be used to control the pressure and keep the CO2 in place. It is valued at about SEK 40 million (around € 3,58 million/$ 3,84 million, January1, 2023, ed) with deliveries scheduled for the first half of 2023.

Quoting Andersson and Haworth

We are excited to have taken this order and we believe that the market for the technology of carbon capture and storage will continue to grow. This is one example of how our advanced materials and products enable new technologies that contribute to the green transition”, says Michael Andersson, President of Tube division.

Similar products that our customers today use for oil and gas extraction, will now be used for carbon capture solutions. We are looking forward to the coming developments”, says Nigel Haworth, President of Business Unit Energy.
