Carbon capture and storage projects under the climate policy regime: The case of Halten CO2
Carbon capture and storage projects under the climate policy regime: The case of Halten CO2

1st December 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Policy law and regulation

The aim of this study is to assess institutional, political and legislative issues associated with the planned “CO2 value chain from Tjeldbergodden to Draugen and Heidrun” industrial project. The Draugen and Heidrun oil reservoirs are two important components of the value chain and are situated on the Halten Bank off mid-Norway. For short we refer to the project as the “Halten CO2 project”. This study is supplemented by an economic study and a study of legislative issues. The economic study is carried out by CICERO and focuses on the social value of the Tjeldbergodden industrial project. The legislative study focuses on environmental liability, discusses the relevant Norwegian legislation, and point out which adjustments Norwegian authorities should consider before CO2 chains become operative in Norway. It is carried out by the Scandinavian Institute of Marine Law at University of Oslo (Berger, 2007a and 2007b).

The In Salah Gas CO2 Storage Project
The In Salah Gas CO2 Storage Project

1st December 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery

This paper provides an overview of the In Salah Gas CO2 Storage Project, based in the Ahnet-Timimoun Basin in the Algerian Central Sahara. The project was established as a public demonstration of storage assurance, to capture and reinject waste CO2 from natural gas production, that would have otherwise been vented to the atmosphere. This is a Joint Industry Project (JIP) with participation from industry, academia, government and non-government organisations.

Development of a CO2 transport and storage network in the North Sea: report to the North Sea Basin Task Force
Development of a CO2 transport and storage network in the North Sea: report to the North Sea Basin Task Force

6th November 2007

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

The UK and Norwegian governments engaged Element Energy Limited, Pöyry Energy, and the British Geological Survey to examine the role that a pipeline infrastructure for carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) could play in reducing CO2 emissions from both countries.

This report, commissioned by the UK Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (formerly the Department of Trade and Industry) on behalf of the UK, Norway and North Sea Basin Task Force, examines possible development pathways for a CCS pipeline infrastructure connecting large UK and Norwegian sources with appropriate sinks in the North Sea and describes the implications for both countries.

Carbon dioxide capture from existing coal-fired power plants
Carbon dioxide capture from existing coal-fired power plants

1st November 2007

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

This study was performed to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of various levels of CO2 capture (e.g., 90%, 70%, 50%, and 30%) for retrofitting an existing pulverized coal-fired power plant (Conesville #5 unit in Ohio, United States) using advanced amine-based capture technology.

Carbon capture and storage at Mongstad
Carbon capture and storage at Mongstad

1st August 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS)

This project, the importance of which the government compared to landing on the moon, has been heavily debated in recent months. Removing and storing the carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas-fired power plants represents a much cleaner way to produce electricity and make use of fossil fuels. This is a new and costly technology. There is a lot of uncertainty associated with these costs, and as it turns out – the Mongstad project will not be in the lower range of these costs.

Expert workshop on financing carbon capture and storage: Barriers and solutions
Expert workshop on financing carbon capture and storage: Barriers and solutions

1st July 2007

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

The CCS Expert Meeting on Finance took place over two days in London.  The Meeting was by invitation only and limited to 80 people that included representatives from Governments, industry, the financial sector academia and research organizations.

The main purpose of the conference was to provide a clearer picture of the options  available to finance CCS projects and to increase the involvement of experts from the financial sector and to discuss financial instruments with industry and Government representatives.  The ultimate outcome of this work will be to identify, encourage and develop world-wide collaboration and practical development of financial mechanisms to accelerate the progression of CCS projects from R&D to commercial reality.
