Case study of the Carson CCS Project

12th October 2010

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Communication, Public engagement

This report is one of a series of case study reports undertaken by CSIRO as part of an international comparison of communication and engagement practices surrounding carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) projects funded by the Global CCS Institute.

This case study examines the plan by BP to construct and operate a commercial hydrogen power plant with carbon capture and storage (CCS), in Carson, California. Carbon dioxide would be captured at the plant and piped to a location in nearby oilfields for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) that would result in carbon dioxide storage. The purpose of the study is to identify key lessons learned in communicating about future sequestration projects.
