Final report on prospective sites for the geological storage of CO2 in the southern Baltic Sea
Final report on prospective sites for the geological storage of CO2 in the southern Baltic Sea

1st February 2014

Organisation(s): Elforsk, Global CCS Institute, SLR Consulting

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

For this study, SLR was commissioned by Elforsk to identify and characterise the potential CO2 storage sites in the southern Baltic Sea, in a project sponsored by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute and Swedish industrial partners.

The study determined that there is a theoretical regional capacity to store some 16Gt of COin the Middle Cambrian sandstone beneath 900 metres of caprock and 1.9Gt in the Dalders Monocline. There is theoretical storage capacity of some 743Mt COin hydrocarbon and saline structures, which are located mainly offshore of Latvia. On the basis of the data available, there is no effective capacity proven within these totals, although the Dalders Structure, with 128Mt, could be considered better defined, albeit still within the theoretical category range. Thus the study has established a relatively large theoretical storage capacity for captured CO2.

Impacts of carbon capture and storage (CCS) on South African national priorities other than climate change
Impacts of carbon capture and storage (CCS) on South African national priorities other than climate change

1st October 2013

Organisation(s): Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF), Prime Africa Consultants, SLR Consulting, South African Centre for Carbon Capture & Storage (SACCCS)

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

This report provides an assessment of the impact of deploying CCS on national priorities other than climate change in South Africa. The report is premised on the assumption that CCS will form part of an integrated basket of measures that include reducing energy consumption and expanding non-fossil energy systems including wind, solar, biomass and geothermal to reduce GHG emissions in South Africa. In contrast to other studies that have assessed the impacts of individual CCS projects, this study covers a much larger integrated CCS programme. This report does not compare the various options for GHG mitigation. Moreover, it is assumed, that South Africa would learn from successful pilot and demonstration projects around the world in the interim period and that the implementation of commercial roll out of full-scale CCS programme will be implemented post 2020.
