Large scale CCS Facilities Added October 2019

The following facilities have been added to the Global CCS Institute Database in October 2019:

Wabash CO2 Sequestration     Wabash Valley Resources LLC aims to develop an ammonia plant with near-zero CO2 emissions using a repurposed integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant in Indiana, USA. The facility will capture 1.5 to 1.75 Mtpa CO2 for dedicated geological storage in the Wabash CarbonSAFE CO2 storage hub.


Abu Dhabi CCS Phase 2 – Natural gas processing plant Abu Dhabi National Oil Company is developing its second CCUS facility in the United Arab Emirates. It will capture 1.9 to 2.3 Mtpa of CO2 from its gas processing plant for EOR. Both the Abu Dhabi Phase 1 (CO2 capture from the Emirates Steel Industries steel plant) and Abu Dhabi Phase 2 facilities will store CO2 in the same reservoir.


Dry Fork Integrated Commercial Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) The Basin Electric Power Cooperative aims to capture 3.0 Mtpa CO2 from the 385 MW Dry Fork coal-fired power station in Wyoming, USA. They are targeting adjacent geological storage formations currently being studied by Wyoming CarbonSAFE. The Cooperative is also considering EOR as a potential CO2 storage pathway, utilising nearby CO2 pipeline networks and EOR operations.


CarbonSAFE Illinois – Macon County This project seeks to establish a 50+ million tonne commercial geological storage hub in Illinois, USA. Adjacent power plants, such as Prairie State Generation (816 MWe, coal-fired power plant, 10 Mtpa CO2) which has been awarded a full-scale FEED study,  and regional ethanol plants are potential CO2 sources.


Project Tundra The Minnkota Power Cooperative is planning the retrofit of a 3.1 to 3.6 Mtpa CO2 capture plant to the Unit 2 Milton R. Young coal-fired power station (455 MWe) in North Dakota USA. They are initially targeting dedicated geological storage sites. The North Dakota CarbonSAFE Storage Hub is studying the future potential for the utilisation of CO2 from this facility for EOR.


Integrated Mid-Continent Stacked Carbon Storage Hub The Integrated Midcontinent Stacked Carbon Storage Hub involves developing a commercial-scale CO2 storage hub in Nebraska and Kansas. The storage hub will form part of an integrated CO2 collection, transportation and storage infrastructure which will enable the collection of CO2 from the dense concentration of ethanol plants, power plants and refinery.


OXY and White Energy Ethanol EOR Facility Occidental Petroleum Corporation and White Energy proposes to capture CO2 from White Energy’s two ethanol facilities in Hereford and Plainview, Texas. The captured CO2 will be stored via EOR operations at Occidental’s oil fields in Permian Basin.


The Clean Gas Project The Clean Gas Project will use natural gas to generate power, with CO2 captured and transported by pipeline for storage in a formation under the Southern North Sea. The infrastructure created would enable industrial clusters in Teesside and elsewhere to capture and store CO2 from their processes.


OXY and Carbon Engineering Direct Air Capture and EOR Facility Oxy Low Carbon Ventures, LLC and Carbon Engineering proposes a joint project of the world’s largest DAC and sequestration facility, with a capacity of 0.5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) CO2 capture capacity. The captured CO2 is planned to be used in Occidental’s EOR operations in the Permian Basin.


Project ECO2S: Early CO2 Storage Complex in Kemper County Project ECO2S aims to establish a CO2 storage site with a storage capacity of approximately one billion metric tons in a 12,000-hectare storage complex near the Kemper County Energy Facility in Kemper County, Mississippi which could serve as a regional CO2 storage hub for regional power and industrial CO2 point sources.
