TGS Launches New Energy Solutions
In February, TGS announced the launch of its New Energy Solutions (NES) business unit. TGS’s goal is to be the leading provider of data and insights directed towards industries actively contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS), deep-sea mining (DSM), geothermal energy, wind energy and solar energy. The starting point is the company’s large subsurface data library, combined with core skills in geoscience, data processing, data management, data analytics and AI. This will be complemented by relevant additional data types and subject matter expertise.
Chief executive officer, Kristian Johansen, sees increasing interest from industries outside of oil and gas for TGS’s data and services. The new business unit will be headed by Jan Schoolmeesters and will focus on the transition towards sustainable energy systems using carbon capture and storage, deep-sea minerals, and renewables.
