Accelerating the uptake of CCS: industrial use of captured carbon dioxide
Accelerating the uptake of CCS: industrial use of captured carbon dioxide

20th December 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 utilisation, Use and storage (CCUS)

The fundamental purpose of this report is to investigate existing and emerging uses of CO2 and to review the potential to capture and reuse CO2for industrial applications in order to accelerate the development and commercial deployment of CCS. It considers both the near-term application of mature technologies such as enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and the longer term application of a number of promising new technologies that are still in the initial stages of their technical development.

GETICA CCS Demo Project Romania. Feasibility study report: carbon dioxide capture to the Global CCS Institute. Public report
GETICA CCS Demo Project Romania. Feasibility study report: carbon dioxide capture to the Global CCS Institute. Public report

1st December 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Use and storage (CCUS)

The Romanian CCS Demonstration Project is to implement a full chain operational CCS system, capturing 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum from an existing 330 MW unit (no.6) of the Turceni Power Plant in Oltenia, Romania. The CO2 from the capture plant will be transported using (where possible) existing onshore natural gas pipelines and stored underground in onshore deep saline formations within a 50 km radius of the power plant.

The purpose of the feasibility study for the CO2 capture plant is establish, amongst other things, appropriate CCS capture technology for the Getica CCS Demonstration project, the material balance and block flow diagrams for the capture facility, integration concepts, accurate cost estimates, and a preliminary execution plan.

This report aims to help similar CCS projects using post-combustion capture technology.

Getica CCS Demo Project Romania: permitting report to the Global CCS Institute. Public report
Getica CCS Demo Project Romania: permitting report to the Global CCS Institute. Public report

18th November 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Permitting, Use and storage (CCUS)

The Romanian CCS Demonstration Project is to implement a full-chain operational CCS system capturing 1.5 million tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from an existing 330 MW unit (no.6) of the Turceni Power Plant in Oltenia, Romania. The CO2 from the capture plant will be transported using (where possible) existing onshore natural gas pipelines and stored underground in onshore deep saline formations within a 50 km radius of the power plant.

The purpose of the Permitting Report is to identify relevant permits and competent authorities involved in the permitting process, to create a permitting map and a permitting time schedule, and to identify the authorities and the permits considered 'critical' to the development of a CCS project in Romania.

This report aims to help similar CCS projects (using post-combustion capture technology) to identify the attention points and needed conditions to get a successful permitting process.

Carbon capture and storage regulatory test toolkit for Romania
Carbon capture and storage regulatory test toolkit for Romania

17th November 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Use and storage (CCUS)

In the context of Romania’s Getica CCS Application for NER300 funding, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) regulatory toolkit was deployed to help the Romanian Government test and improve the legislative framework governing the implementation of CCS projects in Romania. The purpose of the toolkit is mainly to identify capacity issues and gaps and/or overlaps in the permitting process in order to streamline it.

Romania transposed EU Directive 2009/31/EC on the geological storage of carbon dioxide through Government Emergency Ordinance (GEO) no. 64/2011. GEO no. 64/2011 sets out the regulatory framework for CCS in Romania which was subject to the regulatory review under the CCS regulatory toolkit.

The Toolkit was developed by the Global CCS Institute based on a test exercise to assess the existing regulatory and consenting framework for CCS in Scotland. The Institute was involved throughout the Scottish project and, in conjunction with Edinburgh University, developed a generic toolkit which may be applied by other governments.

The Toolkit is designed to allow a detailed evaluation of the adequacy of pre-existing regulatory practices to regulate the entirety of the CCS chain, which in turn will enable governments and regulators to swiftly address gaps and obstacles to the deployment of the technology.

In terms of the Romanian application, the CCS regulatory test toolkit has two main components: (i) the regulatory matrix identifying the permits, approvals and authorisations required for implementing CCS projects from planning and construction to decommissioning (matrix), and (ii) the workshop whereby the matrix is formally submitted to the attention of the public authorities which are invited to comment upon the matrix.

As part of the Romanian CCS regulatory toolkit, based on the legislation in force as of the date of drafting the matrix, Salans prepared the matrix which was formally submitted to the attention of the Romanian public authorities during the workshop organised on 21 and 22 July 2011 in Poiana Brasov, Romania. The authorities were invited to comment on the matrix.

This report summarises: (i) the principles upon which the matrix was drafted, (ii) the action plan for organising the workshop, and (iii) the outcome of the workshop.

Bridging the commercial gap for carbon capture and storage
Bridging the commercial gap for carbon capture and storage

1st July 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 capture, Project financing, Use and storage (CCUS)

Tenaska share their analysis of the commercial market factors which drive their project. This project plans to sell electricity into the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) energy market, capture over five million tonnes of CO2 per year, and sell it into the Permian Basin Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) market both of which have large unmet demand. This report discusses the economic realities facing the Trailblazer Project to incorporate a commercial-scale carbon dioxide capture plant into its initial design. It reviews the markets for both electricity and carbon dioxide, and discusses the governmental support that may be needed to bridge the gap between the Project’s likely costs and revenues.
