This seminar will be a timely opportunity to assess the progress and way forward on the implementation of the Government's CCS strategy.
Following the selection of the two preferred bidders for the UK's CCS Commercialisation Competition, planned sessions look at the latest developments and next steps in designing, constructing and operating the technology.
The Summit will bring together the leadership of the world's largest coal producing companies, senior policy-makers, business leaders, academics and NGO representatives to discuss the role of coal in the global economy, in the context of the climate change agenda.
The 4th Korea CCS International Conference assembles the best talent in the CCS RD&D fields; experts, management teams, engineers, and executives alike gather to collaborate and address these current challenges, celebrate evolution and achievement over the last 15+ years, and promote the multitude of opportunities fundamental for a successful future in CO2 capture, storage, conversion and utilization, demonstration, and policy.
The global clean energy community comprising of renewables, energy efficiency and carbon capture and storage (CCS) was recently lauded by the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action (ADP) as being additive rather than competitive; and that international collaboration to demonstrate these technologies at scale to overcome the challenges must be to the benefit of the global commons. These themes are further discussed by an eminent panel of globally respected experts.
Climate science increasingly demands of carbon capture and storage (CCS) a substantive theoretical mitigation role over the medium term. The reality is that CCS progress continues to be stifled by changing government priorities, a weakening propensity to invest by the private sector and low community acceptability. This discussion will explore these challenges as well as identify further opportunities to support CCS.
This side-event will provide an overview of the latest developments in the technological, policy and regulatory aspects of carbon capture and storage (CCS). The value propositions that support the business cases of investments in early large-scale CCS demonstration projects will be examined, as will the positive spillover effects associated with such demonstrations. The commercial pathways that can provide for the future wide-scale deployment of CCS will also be explored.
Yanchang Integrated CCS is an industrial CCS development located in Yulin City, Shaanxi Province, China. Yanchang Petroleum, through affiliates, is developing CO2 capture facilities at two coal-to-chemicals plants. The smaller scale capture source of 0.05 Mtpa CO2 capture capacity has been in operation since 2012, while the larger CO2 source of 0.36 Mtpa CO2 is currently in construction and may be operational in 2018-19. Captured CO2 would be used for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in oil fields in the Ordos Basin in central China.
Uthmaniyah CO2-EOR Demonstration compresses and dehydrates CO2 from the Hawiyah NGL (natural gas liquids) Recovery plant in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Operations commenced in 2015 with a CO2 capture capacity of around 0.8 Mtpa. The captured CO2 is transported via pipeline to the injection site in Ghawar oil field (a small flooded area in the Uthmaniyah production unit) for enhanced oil recovery.
