Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 1: status of carbon capture and storage projects globally
Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 1: status of carbon capture and storage projects globally

1st November 2009

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

In May 2009, a consortium led by WorleyParsons and comprising Schlumberger, Electric Power Research Institute and Baker & McKenzie was engaged to undertake the Strategic Analysis of the Global Status of Carbon Capture and Storage.

The consortium was tasked to undertake a comprehensive survey of the status of CCS and to develop a series of reports analysing CCS projects, the economics of CCS, policies supporting CCS development and existing research and development networks.  A fifth report - the Synthesis Report - was also developed and this summarises the findings of the first four reports, and provides a comprehensive assessment of the gaps and barriers to the deployment of large-scale CCS projects, including strategies and recommendations to address these issues.

An ideal portfolio of CCS projects and rationale for supporting projects report
An ideal portfolio of CCS projects and rationale for supporting projects report

16th October 2009

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

The Global CCS Institute engaged L.E.K. Consulting to research and propose a theoretical portfolio of CCS projects, as well as a rationale for supporting projects. This portfolio study consists of two sections: the ideal portfolio which describes the range of projects that would address different hurdles to CCS deployment; and the rationale for supporting projects which describes possible ways in which the Global CCS Institute can identify and support CCS projects as they relate to an ideal portfolio. The Global CCS Institute will use the recommendations of this study to shape its strategy going forward on its selection of, and involvement with, CCS projects.

Eine Einführung in Das Europäische CCS Demonstrationsprojekte Netzwerk
Eine Einführung in Das Europäische CCS Demonstrationsprojekte Netzwerk

13th October 2009

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

In ihrem Klima- und Energiepaket aus dem Jahre 2008 drückte die Europäische Union ihre Überzeugung aus, dass der Ausstoß von Kohlendioxid bis zum Jahre 2050 um mindestens 50 Prozent reduziert werden muss. Eine wichtige Rolle im Rahmen dieses Pakets spielten Technologien zur Abscheidung, Transport und Speicherung von Kohlendioxid (CCS). Deshalb einigten sich die europäischen Regierungen darauf, bis zu 12 große CCS-Demonstrationsprojekte zu fördern. Um die Entwicklung der Technologie in Europa zu unterstützen, hat die Europäische Kommission ein Netzwerk für CCS Projekte ins Leben gerufen. Die ersten Projekte wurden bereits auf den Weg gebracht, auch dank zügiger Initiativen in den verschiedenen Mitgliedsländern und genehmigter Finanzierungskonzepte auf EU-Ebene. Wir wollen mit dem CCS Netzwerk eine stabile Verbindung zwischen den Projekten zu schaffen, die an dem gemeinsamen Ziel arbeiten, CCS bis zum Jahre 2020 kommerziell nutzbar zu machen. Das Netzwerk fördert dabei den Informationsaustausch zwischen den Betreibern der Demonstrationsprojekte und soll außerdem helfen, die öffentliche Akzeptanz für CCS zu erhöhen. Der Austausch wird den Lernprozess deutlich beschleunigen und dafür sorgen, dass wir unseren Beitrag zu einer sicheren Verwirklichung der CCSTechnologie leisten, sowohl innerhalb der europäischen Union, als auch bei der Zusammenarbeit mit Partnern aus der ganzen Welt.

National carbon mapping and infrastructure plan – Australia : full report

1st September 2009

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

The Carbon Storage Taskforce developed this Plan under the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative. This Plan describes the risks and opportunities presented by transport and storage of carbon dioxide, acting as Australia’s roadmap to prioritising the development of suitable storage sites and the necessary pipeline infrastructure.

Deployment of carbon dioxide (CO2) transport and storage in Australia is technically viable and, under appropriate management regimes, safe. However, current geological and engineering activities must be accelerated and maintained over the next decade if the nation is to be in a position to capture the opportunity for commercial deployment beyond 2020.

Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Canada

1st July 2009

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

CCS policy will ultimately be driven by the western Canadian provinces, which need CCS to be aviable alternative to dramatic emissions reductions. To date, the focus in Canada has been onfunding pilot CCS projects and not developing a coherent set of standards for the proper implementation of CCS activities.

In order to encourage CCS project development, Canadian jurisdictions will need to develop regulatoryframeworks able to deal with the unique qualities of CCS projects. Existing pipelines and mininglegislation could be adapted to this purpose.

CO2 capture, transport and storage
CO2 capture, transport and storage

1st June 2009

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

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from large sources such as fossil fuel power stations, transporting it, and then storing it in secure geological formations deep underground. These formations include depleted oil and gas fields, and natural underground reservoirs. This POSTnote details the main CCS technologies and considers their safety and legal issues. This is followed by an overview of global CCS projects as well as a discussion of UK and EU policy.

Capturing carbon, tackling climate change: A vision for a CCS cluster in the South East
Capturing carbon, tackling climate change: A vision for a CCS cluster in the South East

4th April 2009

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

The review recommends that the collected CO2 is combined into a pipework network that links the area to depleted gas fields, such as the Hewett Field. There is sufficient storage to absorb over 60 years of CO2 emissions from the Thames Cluster. There is additional storage available in other gas and oil fields and further storage in aquifers.

It is most cost effective to start a CCS cluster by capturing CO2 from the largest emitters first. These provide the flow rates to justify a pipeline network. In the area of the Thames Estuary there are eight sites (seven power plants and a refinery) which each emit over 1 million tonnes (Mt) of CO2 per year. The potential for a CCS cluster from these sites combined is around 28 Mt CO2 annually.

Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Indonesia

31st March 2009

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

Indonesia has not introduced any policies or legislation dedicated to encouraging the development of CCS technologies or regulating the CCS project cycle.Indonesia has introduced a number of climate change and energy conservation policies which could provide a framework for high-level policy support for CCS incentives.

The Indonesian Government is cooperating with the governments of other countries including Norway and the United Kingdom to map potential CO2 sequestration sites in Indonesia.

Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Japan

31st March 2009

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

Current government efforts to revise the Japanese legal system to facilitate CCS projects, and financial support for research, development and demonstration projects in the area of CCS are also a result of Japan’s commitment to CCS. The Government's Action Plan for Building a Low Carbon Society, released in 2008, aims to:

  • reduce the costs of CO2 separation and capture to around 2000 yen per tonne by 2015;
  • reduce the costs of CO2 separation and capture to around 1000 yen per tonne by 2020;
  • begin a large-scale CCS project early in 2009; and
  • work toward making CCS projects and technology accessible and possible to implement on a commercial scale by 2020.

This is to be done through, amongst other things, improving monitoring and environmental impact assessment capabilities and revision of legislation and regulations as required.
