New carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) venture EcoLog has named engineering construction and procurement company Bechtel as its new partner with whom it will progress the designs of its planned CO2 import and export terminals.

EcoLog’s Jasper Heikens, who is building the new business with Greek shipowner Peter Livanos’ Ceres Shipping, told TradeWinds that Bechtel is conducting a pre-feasibility study on the planned facilities.
