Shell, with strategic support from SSE, are looking to develop the world’s first full-scale gas carbon capture and storage (CCS) project – the Peterhead CCS Project. The proposed project would see 10 to 15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions captured from the Peterhead Power Station in the North East of Scotland and transported by pipeline offshore for geological storage deep under the North Sea.
In March 2013, the Peterhead CCS Project was chosen as one of two CCS demonstration projects in the UK to progress to the next stage of the UK Government’s CCS Commercialisation Competition funding. This funding allowed the Project to progress through the detailed design phase known as Front-End Engineering Design, or FEED.
Now, as the Project nears the end of this FEED phase of development, we were delighted to have Peterhead’s Business Opportunity Manager, Bill Spence join us for this webinar. In addition to giving an overview of the project and an update on recent developments, Bill also painted a picture of how this proposed project fits into Shell’s overall global CCS programme.
