Dispersion modelling techniques for carbon dioxide pipelines in Australia
23rd September 2015
The Global CCS Institute presents the first detailed report on CO2 pipeline design for Australia. This comprehensive investigation provides a critical review of current Australian and global pipeline design standards for CO2 transport. The report provides insight into the current Australian Standards for Pipeline Design, AS2885 and undertaking fit-for-purpose dispersion modeling for CO2 detailing a set of guidelines and best practice recommendations.
The report was prepared for Brown Coal Innovation by Sherpa Consulting and funded by the Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research and Development Ltd (ANLEC R&D) and the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport, and Resources of the State of Victoria, administered through Brown Coal Innovation Australia Limited and is part of the series of reports focussing on CCS in Victoria.
Chris Consoli, Institute Senior Adviser for Storage, Asia-Pacific also provides an overview of the report in an Insight available on the Global CCS Institute website.

Feasibility assessment of the options for up-scaling proposed CCS facility
28th August 2015
National Grid Carbon (NGC) is developing a carbon dioxide transportation and storage system to support the provision of Carbon Capture and Storage technology in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
Initially, this will involve the construction of a cross country pipeline and subsea pipeline for transporting captured CO2 to a permanent storage site in the Bunter sandstone aquifer located within Block 5/42 of the UK sector of the Southern North Sea.
The initial CO2 load is anticipated to be supplied by the Drax power station and will be a maximum of 2.68 Million Tonnes per Annum (MTPA). However, with this load, the utilisation of the proposed CCS facility will be well below its capacity. NGC anticipates a second CO2 load from the Don Valley Power project to enhance the aquifer utilisation. In addition, NGC is also seeking to review potential options for up-scaling the CCS facility by transporting additional CO2 from Rotterdam via ship or pipeline into the proposed injection facility.
DNV GL have been engaged by NGC to carry out a feasibility study to assess two options for up-scaling the proposed carbon capture and storage facilities. Option 1 proposes to transport CO2 from Rotterdam directly to the injection facility in the Southern North Sea (Pipeline Option) whilst Option 2 proposes to transport CO2 by ship from Rotterdam to a reception facility on the River Humber, from where a pipeline will connect into the proposed CCS Cross Country pipeline at Camblesforth multi-junction (Shipping Option).
Three flow rates have been assessed for each option; (A) 2 MTPA, (B) 5 MTPA, and (C) 7.32 MTPA.
The findings and recommendations from this study are presented in this report.
