In recent years, the fact that environmental constraints increases has prompted all sectors of industry to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and limit the impact of their activities on the environment.

TotalEnergies is one of the companies the most committed to reducing emissions, primarily through innovation in the field of CO2 capture and injection. The underlying idea is quite simple: converting disused gas production reservoirs into CO2 storage.

Several projects in the North Sea have recently been launched. The main principle of the process is to transport liquid or gaseous CO2 to facilities located close to the sea, download, regas (partially) and compress the gas and then inject it under pressure into a storage reservoir via disused production wells.

Keywords: Petri nets, CO2 injection, CO2 capture, Sustainable development, Production availability.
