CO-LaN Management Board held its monthly meeting on July 8, 2022 from 9 am till 10:30 am Central European Time.



  • BASF (represented by Norbert ASPRION),
  • BP (represented by Kathyrn YEARSLEY),
  • LINDE (represented by Oliver KOCH),
  • Shell (represented by Richard BAUR),
  • F&Cie (contractor/represented by Florence KUIJL)
  • Michel PONS (CTO/contractor).



  • Means of payment remain frozen for the CO-LaN bank account at Société Générale while whatever document and information requested by the bank have been handed over by CO-LaN. As shown by current budget execution (expenses at 25% only of budgeted amounts), this situation has a major impact on projects and contractors. The bank is irresponsive and therefore, after review, CO-LaN has unfortunately no means to make the situation evolved.
  • Arrangements at Linde in Pullach for hosting the CAPE-OPEN 2022 Annual Meeting were reviewed so that the necessary information may be provided to those attending in person. Registration is now open and advertised on CO-LaN website. Program is mostly non-existent yet and needs to be developed.
  • As preparation to the workshop on CAPE-OPEN 2.0 to be held within the CAPE-OPEN 2022 Annual Meeting, Full Members are asked to circulate the needs / issues that they are confronted with.
