Yanchang Petroleum report 2: CO2 storage and EOR in ultra-low permeability reservoir in the Yanchang Formation, Ordos Basin

22nd January 2016

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, Ltd., Shaanxi Yanchang Petroleum (Group) Corp.

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

To promote the development of CCS in China, the Global CCS Institute and China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) held a joint carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) workshop in Yan’An China in July 2013. Out of this collaboration the Global CCS Institute has commissioned Yanchang Petroleum Group to produce four knowledge-sharing reports on its integrated CCS project.

This second report of the series discusses the storage aspects of Yanchang Petroleum CCUS Project. It highlights project achievements and lessons learned from the project.

Christopher Consoli, Institute Senior Adviser for Storage, Asia-Pacific provides an overview of this report in an Insight available on the Global CCS Institute website.

The Global Status of CCS: 2014
The Global Status of CCS: 2014

5th November 2014

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

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

The Global CCS Institute is pleased to announce the release of our Global Status of CCS: 2014 report. 

The report provides a detailed overview of the current status of large-scale CCS projects worldwide, finding that 2014 has been a pivotal year for CCS, which is now a reality in the power industry. 

For the first time, the report introduces and provides links to project descriptions for around 40 lesser scale ‘notable’ CCS projects. The 2014 report focuses on a number of ‘notable’ projects in Japan. 

The Global Status of CCS: 2014 report provides a comprehensive overview of global and regional developments in CCS and what is required to support global climate mitigation efforts. Providing a number of key recommendations for decision makers, The Global Status of CCS: 2014 report is an important reference guide for industry, government, research bodies and the broader community.

Technical aspects of CO2 enhanced oil recovery and associated carbon storage
Technical aspects of CO2 enhanced oil recovery and associated carbon storage

4th November 2013

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

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

Injection of carbon dioxide into mature oil reservoirs is a proven effective method for improving oil production that can be applied to a variety of oil reservoirs in different geological settings. Retention of the injected carbon dioxide within the reservoir is an intrinsic part of the CO2 EOR process, and effectively all CO2 purchased for injection will ultimately remain stored within the oil field at the end of EOR operations. This storage aspect has driven interest in CO2 EOR as a potential method of CCS that has a supportive business component.

The storage opportunities within CO2 EOR floods are generally not maximised, although there are no over-riding technical impediments preventing using more of the pore space for storage. Transitional, or residual oil zones, and stacked reservoirs all pose significant opportunities to increase storage amounts well beyond that used strictly for EOR. While deploying monitoring equipment and determining suitable baselines may present challenges to some existing operations, technical solutions can be found to address most of these issues.

Bridging the gap: an analysis and comparison of legal and regulatory frameworks for CO2-EOR and CO2-CCS
Bridging the gap: an analysis and comparison of legal and regulatory frameworks for CO2-EOR and CO2-CCS

1st October 2013

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

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

This paper seeks to assist policymakers in evaluating the potential for integrating supplies of captured anthropogenic CO2 into profitable EOR operations as one part of a long-term strategy for developing widespread deployment of CCS technology.

Part I reviews the existing legal and regulatory frameworks governing CO2 transactions, transport, injection and storage in the context of EOR operations.

Part II reviews the changes to this existing EOR–based framework that are in various stages of adoption in order to allow for CCS–based storage.

Part III builds on these two prior sections to summarise issues that need to be addressed, and to set forth conclusions and recommendations for steps that may be taken by jurisdictions looking to harness the potential value of CO2–based EOR as part of a long-term strategy of using CCS technology as an emissions reduction tool.

Carbon capture through innovative commercial structuring in the Canadian oil sands:  a project overview of the North West Sturgeon Refinery
Carbon capture through innovative commercial structuring in the Canadian oil sands: a project overview of the North West Sturgeon Refinery

29th April 2013

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, North West Redwater Partnership

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

The North West Sturgeon Refinery (NWSR) project has been developed to take advantage of the rising supply of bitumen from the oil sands of northern Alberta and the need for refining conversion capacity to produce low carbon fuels with reduced GHG emissions. Since its inception the project has incorporated gasification technology to economically co-produce hydrogen for the refining process and pure COthat will generate a modest revenue stream from sales into an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) scheme. These and other interrelated benefits are described in this report.
The fully integrated project will capture, use for EOR and geologically sequester over 1.2 million tonnes per year of 99% pure, dry CO2, the equivalent to removing approximately 225,000 vehicles from the road. The CO2 from the NWSR will also be the anchor supply for the Alberta Carbon Trunk Line (ACTL), an open access COpipeline being developed by Enhance Energy Inc. The ACTL has public funding which will support the development of a common COhandling infrastructure for EOR in Alberta.
The willingness of the Alberta and Canadian governments to support large scale CCS projects with the creation of a CCS Fund and development of an effective CO2 storage regulatory framework was essential for the COcapture component of the NWRP and ACTL to proceed.

EOR/CCS 360-degree legal review

1st November 2012

Organisation(s): Bech-Bruun, Global CCS Institute

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

This report provides a high-level regulatory overview of the legal issues of importance for a combined enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Denmark. The aim of the report is to assess the CCS and ETS regulation applicable to a combined EOR and CCS project. Including to review applicable regulation in Denmark, EU regulations and international conventions and agreements to which Denmark is a party. The report assesses applicable regulation with respect to the individual steps in the project cycle, including capture of the CO2, transportation by pipeline or ship, injection and storage, and the transfer of responsibility of the CO2 storage site to the Danish State.
