Collie-South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project and activity progress report for the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute
23rd November 2011
The South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub project is a government-industry partnership presently led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum. The South West Hub project was established to examine the options for CCS in the South West of Western Australia (a major industrial region and a significant CO2 producer). In November 2011, the South West Hub project was shortlisted as one of the Australian CCS National Flagship Projects and in June 2011 was awarded AU$52 million under that Program for its ongoing project development.
This first Project and Activity Progress report prepared for the Global CCS Institute describes the project’s history, current status, and future program. Furthermore, it highlights key legislative interactions, public communication activities, as well as the challenges and risks the project is currently facing. Future progress reports, anticipated at six-monthly intervals will build on key themes noted in this first report. From time to time additional Special Reports on specific subjects considered important for the development of the South West Hub project will also be made available on the Institute’s knowledge platform.
