Design and operation of CO2 pipelines
Design and operation of CO2 pipelines

1st April 2010

Topic(s): CO2 transport, CO2 hubs

This recommended practice provides guidance for managing risks and uncertainties during the whole lifetime of a CO2 pipeline, including design, testing, inspection, operation, maintenance, and de-commissioning. The document incorporates lessons learned from existing CO2 pipelines.

Developing a pipeline infrastructure for CO2 capture and storage: Issues and challenges
Developing a pipeline infrastructure for CO2 capture and storage: Issues and challenges

1st February 2009

Topic(s): CO2 transport, CO2 hubs

The study forecasts that the amount of pipeline that will be needed to transport CO2 will be between 15,000 miles and 66,000 miles by 2030, depending on how much CO2 must be sequestered and the degree to which enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is involved. The upper end of the forecast range is of the same order of magnitude as the miles of existing U.S. crude oil pipelines and products pipelines. While there are no significant barriers to building the forecasted pipeline mileage, the major challenges to implementing CCS are in public policy and regulation. Because a CCS industry can evolve in several ways, public policy decisions must address key questions about industry structure, government support of early development, regulatory models, and operating rules. Such issues must be resolved before necessary investments in a CCS pipeline system can be made.

Development of a guideline for safe, reliable and cost effective transmission of CO2 in pipelines
Development of a guideline for safe, reliable and cost effective transmission of CO2 in pipelines

1st January 2009

Topic(s): CO2 transport, CO2 hubs

During the last decades significant effort has been put into research on the social, economical, political and technical issues related to large scale deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). A complete CCS cycle requires safe, reliable and cost efficient solutions for transmission of CO2 from the capturing facility to the location of permanent storage. The current initiative originates from DNV’s long engagement in developing standards and guidelines for offshore pipelines and an identified need to specifically address the technical challenges related to transmission of CO2 with associated contaminants. The guideline will be based on a comprehensive literature review and gathering of experience from existing (both onshore and offshore) CO2 pipeline operators. Available pipeline codes, standards, guidelines and regulations combined with the latest available research and technical developments is set as the point of departure for this guideline development. Issues related to pipeline design, commissioning and operation as well as re-qualification/conversion of existing pipelines for transmission of CO2 will be addressed. The guideline is being developed as a joint industry project and is scheduled for delivery by end of July 2009. After completion of the JIP, the guideline will be converted into a public available Recommended Practice (RP) by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). The guideline will give “how to?” answers for safe, reliable and cost-effective transmission of CO2 in pipelines. This paper addresses main technical issues one need to manage.
