Aramis welcomes Dutch-Belgian agreement

On June 22, 2023 The Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Micky Adriaansens, Deputy Prime Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne (Belgium) and the Ministers Zuhal Demir (Flanders) and Philippe Henry (Wallonia) signed an agreement on CCS cooperation and cross-border transport of CO2. The agreement was signed in Antwerp during the State visit of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima to Belgium.

The agreement emphasizes the importance that both countries attach to cooperation in the field of energy transition, making industry more sustainable and the role that CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) plays a role in this. The agreement paves the way for the transport of CO2 from Belgium for storage in the Netherlands. Aramis plays a key role in these developments: the project unlocks Dutch offshore storage fields for CO2 storage.

The Aramis CCS project hopes that this agreement will serve as a blueprint and incentive for further CCS cooperation between the Netherlands and countries such as Germany and France. Aramis sees an important role for itself in intensifying dialogue with private and public parties in Belgium and in other EU Member States.
