The Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP), announced in October 2020, will provide the common infrastructure needed to capture and transport CO2 from carbon-emitting projects, such as Net Zero Teesside Power, to secure offshore storage in the North Sea.  

In October 2021, the NEP’s East Coast Cluster, which includes Net Zero Teesside, was selected as a priority cluster in phase 1 of the UK Government’s Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage cluster sequencing process.

The project is a partnership between bp, National Grid, Equinor, Shell and Total.
