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.
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology offers the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial sources by permanently storing (sequestering) carbon dioxide in deep geological formations. This Det Norske Veritas guideline describes a work process for managing the risks and opportunities associated with existing wells at CO2 storage sites.
This publication is the final deliverable from the CO2WELLS Joint Industry Project (JIP). The JIP addressed industry and regulatory concerns about the potential for CO2 leakage along abandoned wells, and additionally existing wells and well conversions.
The sponsors of the CO2WELLS JIP were: DNV, Shell Canada, Petrobras, Vattenfall, E.On New Build & Technology Ltd. and E.ON Gas Storage GmbH, RWE Dea AG, UK Health & Safety Executive, National Grid, Global CCS Institute, Gassnova SF and Gassco AS.
