Research report: hazard analysis for offshore carbon capture platforms and offshore pipelines
Research report: hazard analysis for offshore carbon capture platforms and offshore pipelines

1st September 2013

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 transport, CO2 hubs, Health, safety and environment

The intention of this publication is to provide a basic guide for the health and safety hazard analysis for offshore management of CO2 pipelines and platforms, where CO2 will be present as a part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) installations; communicate existing knowledge on pipeline and offshore facility design and operation; and identify areas of uncertainty where existing knowledge cannot be applied with sufficient confidence, considering the scale and nature of expected CCS operations in the future.

Knowledge sharing report. CO2 liquid logistics shipping concept (LLSC): safety, health and environment (SHE) report
Knowledge sharing report. CO2 liquid logistics shipping concept (LLSC): safety, health and environment (SHE) report

22nd June 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 transport, CO2 hubs, Health, safety and environment

To support the early deployment of CCS in Rotterdam and the development of a Rotterdam CCS Network, the Global CCS Institute supported Vopak and Anthony Veder to conduct a feasibility study on their CO2 liquid logistics shipping concept that will provide emitters with a complete logistical transportation solution for captured CO2 from their site to an offshore storage location.

This concept comprises a CO2 terminal (or a ‘CO2 hub’) which is capable of gathering CO2 from multiple sources and distributing it via multiple transportation modalities to various sinks. This will provide maximum flexibility and reliability to both emitters and storage operators, eventually leading to a reduced cost of CCS.

In the hub, the CO2 is collected from various sources by both onshore pipelines and barges, and is subsequently sent out via offshore pipelines and sea-going vessels that are capable of discharging on a standalone basis offshore. This report details the safety aspects of the hub concept.

Technical guidance on hazard analysis for onshore carbon capture installations and onshore pipelines
Technical guidance on hazard analysis for onshore carbon capture installations and onshore pipelines

1st September 2010

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 transport, CO2 hubs, Health, safety and environment

This document sets out the methodology for implementing appropriate hazard analysis for carbon dioxide related hazards on onshore carbon capture installations and pipelines. Users will be able to review potential projects and assess the hazards and likely frequency of those hazards through the appropriate use of frequency data. Project engineers will them be able to understand the consequences of any loss of carbon dioxide containment by modelling the dispersion of the carbon dioxide. These concentrations, when combined with the HSE’s parameters for occupational exposure to carbon dioxide indicate the likely level of harm arising from an intentional or accidental release of carbon dioxide. The document includes:

  • hazard and risk analysis for carbon dioxide systems onshore;
  • failure frequency data sources for carbon dioxide;
  • detailed guidance on using currently available commercial dispersion models for carbon dioxide;
  • fatal area predictions using SLOT/SLOD data and dispersion modelling; and
  • gaps and uncertainties in carbon dioxide hazard analysis.

It is an essential new guide for modellers, engineers and health & safety specialists working on global carbon capture and storage projects.
