Projects

AEP's Mountaineer project has been operating at pilot scale since September 2009. AEP has decided to put further CCS activity on hold.

Occidental Petroleum, in partnership with Sandridge Energy, is operating a gas processing plant in West Texas that at present can capture 8.4 Mtpa of carbon dioxide for use in enhanced oil recovery.

This operating enhanced oil recovery project uses carbon dioxide sourced from the Mitchell, Gray Ranch, Puckett, Pikes Peak and Terrell gas processing plants and transported via the Val Verde and CRC pipelines.

This Project is considered On Hold.

This project will convert natural gas into hydrogen and carbon dioxide. The 380 MW hydrogen power plant will generate over 5 per cent of all Abu Dhabi's current power generation capacity. Captured carbon dioxide will be used for enhanced oil recovery.

Around 7 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide are recovered from ExxonMobil’s Shute Creek gas processing plant in Wyoming, and transported by pipeline to various oil fields for enhanced oil recovery. This project has been operational since 1986.

C.GEN is proposing a new IGCC plant in north Lincolnshire that would capture around 2.5 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide feeding into the National Grid transport and storage network. The project is part of the Yorkshire Forward initiative.

This project is considered on hold. This project is developing a 340 MW oxy-fuel natural gas-based power plant in Rotterdam that would capture around 2.5 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide. The project is part of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative.

Progressive Energy proposes to develop a new IGCC power plant with pre-combustion carbon capture at 400MWe in Teesside, storing 2.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum. It is anticipated that this new-build plant may be operational by 2018.

Alstom UK, Drax Power and National Grid are jointly developing a new 426 MW oxy-fired plant in North Yorkshire which would capture around 2 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide. The project is part of the Humber CCS Cluster.

Medicine Bow Fuel and Power, LLC (MBFP) plans to build a greenfield, mine-mouth coal-to-liquids facility using methanol to gasoline technology to produce up to 11,686 barrels per day of liquid transportation fuels and 6803 tons per day of CO2. The CO2 will used for enhanced oil recovery.
