The South West Hub Carbon Capture and Storage Project team, led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) is committed to an open process of community involvement during all stages of the project. The project team host regular community information sessions and make regular appearances at local agricultural shows. In October 2014 the project team released this report, ‘Lessons from Project Level Community Engagement’ that discusses the impacts and effects of the public engagement program undertaken by DMP.

This report is written by Peta Ashworth, Ash Research, for ANLEC R&D.

A Day in the Life of a Carbon Atom. Starring: Adom is published with thanks to the students and staff at St Michael’s Catholic Primary School in Brunswick Junction, Western Australia Department of Mines and Petroleum, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and CarbonKids.

The illustrated children’s book was created by year six and seven students and highlights the carbon capture and storage (CCS) process. The book was launched at the 2014 National CCS Conference in Sydney, Australia.

The project was part of the CSIRO’s CarbonKids program which is also supported by the Global CCS Institute.

西オーストラリア州 温室効果ガスの回収・貯留: 二つのプロジェクトの物語
西オーストラリア州 温室効果ガスの回収・貯留: 二つのプロジェクトの物語

6th June 2013

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Department of Mines and Petroleum, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, Western Australia

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

西オーストラリア州では二つのCCSプロジェクトが計画されている。両プロジェクトとも、豪州連邦政府及び西オーストラリア州政府の共同パートナーシップによる支援を受けている。一方のプロジェクトは液化天然ガス(LNG: Liquefied Natural Gas)プラントから発生するCO2を貯留し、もう一方は石炭を燃焼する産業及び石炭火力発電によって生じるCO2を貯留する。両者が違う点は、社会及び環境への影響並びに貯留層の地質である。一方は動物相を保護する価値が高く、人の住んでいない場所に立地しており、他方は人口の多い農業地域である。また、一方には従来型の貯留用シールがあり、他方は複数のトラップメカニズムを採用している。両プロジェクトを合わせると、西オーストラリア州のCO2排出量の11%を貯留する容量がある。

本書ではこれらの最先端のプロジェクトの相違点及び共通点を検証する。

South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project activity and progress report
South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project activity and progress report

1st June 2013

Organisation(s): Department of Mines and Petroleum, Global CCS Institute, Government of Western Australia, Western Australia

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

The South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub project (the South West Hub) is a government industry partnership led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP). The South West Hub is Western Australia’s first onshore Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) trial project.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the South West Hub project and an update on recent activity and outcomes of the Harvey 1 well drilling program.

Western Australia greenhouse gas capture and storage: a tale of two projects
Western Australia greenhouse gas capture and storage: a tale of two projects

31st May 2012

Organisation(s): Australian Government, Department of Mines and Petroleum, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism, Western Australia

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

This report, developed by the Western Australian and Australian Government, delves into the two current CCS projects being developed in Western Australia – the South West Hub and the Gorgon LNG Project. The similarities and differences between the Projects are discussed, including their social and environmental impact, and reservoir geology.

Together these projects have the potential to store 11 per cent of Western Australia’s CO2 emissions.

The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’s (CSIRO) Science into Society Group, in conjunction with the Western Australia Department of Mines and Petroleum, conducted a workshop in Harvey, Western Australia in February 2011, supported by the Global CCS Institute. The aims of the workshop were to:

  1. assess the public’s knowledge and attitudes towards climate change science and low emissions energy technologies, particularly CCS;
  2. establish a framework for future public participation in studies and evaluation of the Collie Hub concept; and
  3. explore the effectiveness of a participatory one-day workshop process to enable more informed dialogue about the issues and risks regarding climate change science and energy technology options.

Information was presented on climate change and low emission energy sources and related technologies, followed by a presentation on CCS and the Collie Hub project. The workshop resulted in a number of significant improvements in participants’ self-rated knowledge of climate change and related issues. The vast majority of participants expressed agreement that climate change was an important issue to Australia.

The reports outline the process and information from the community consultation in Harvey and detail the Collie CCS Hub workshop results. A separate document outlines the questions (and answers) raised by the workshop attendees. These documents provide useful information for project proponents looking to undertake similar community consultation activities, and highlights some of the issues pertinent to the public within the CCS space.
