Proposal: A new build carbon dioxide (CO2) pipeline that will transport CO2 produced and captured by future hydrogen producing facilities and existing industrial premises in North West England and North Wales for offshore storage. The CO2 pipeline will comprise both newbuild and existing pipelines that will be covered under the DCO. When complete it will run from the Ince AGI in Cheshire to Talacre Beach in North Wales. Location: Pipeline between Ince, near Stanlow, and Flint. It will link into an existing gas pipeline running from Flint to Point of Ayr Grid Ref’s: Route between E 346901 N 376125 E 336448 N 368870 E 314092 N 374635 E 310856 N 384119 Thank you for consulting the Ministry of Defence (MOD) on the above proposed development which was received by this office on the 26/11/2022. The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Safeguarding Team represents the Ministry of Defence (MOD) as a consultee in UK planning and energy consenting systems to ensure that development does not compromise or degrade the operation of defence sites such as aerodromes, explosives storage sites, air weapon ranges, and technical sites or training resources such as the Military Low Flying System. The applicant has submitted a Development Consent Order application for a new pipeline to transport carbon dioxide between Ince, near Stanlow, and Flint for offshore storage. This application relates to a site outside of Ministry of Defence safeguarding areas. I can therefore confirm that the Ministry of Defence has no safeguarding concerns to this proposal. The MOD must emphasise that the advice provided within this letter is in response to the data and information detailed above and, in the documentation, titled HYNET NORTH WEST CARBON DIOXIDE PIPELINE dated 26/11/2022 Any variation of the parameters (which include the location, dimensions, form, and finishing materials) detailed may significantly alter how the development relates to MOD safeguarding requirements and cause adverse impacts to safeguarded defence assets or capabilities. In the event that any amendment, whether considered material or not by the determining authority, is submitted for approval, the MOD should be consulted and provided with adequate time to carry out assessments and provide a formal response. I trust this is clear however should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
