Knowledge sharing report. CO2 liquid logistics shipping concept (LLSC): overall supply chain optimization
21st June 2011
To support the early deployment of CCS in Rotterdam and the development of a Rotterdam CCS Network, the Global CCS Institute supported Vopak and Anthony Veder to conduct a feasibility study on their CO2 liquid logistics shipping concept that will provide emitters with a complete logistical transportation solution for captured CO2 from their site to an offshore storage location.
This concept comprises a CO2 terminal (or a ‘CO2 hub’) which is capable of gathering CO2 from multiple sources and distributing it via multiple transportation modalities to various sinks. This will provide maximum flexibility and reliability to both emitters and storage operators, eventually leading to a reduced cost of CCS.
In the hub, the CO2 is collected from various sources by both onshore pipelines and barges, and is subsequently sent out via offshore pipelines and sea-going vessels that are capable of discharging on a standalone basis offshore. This report provides an optimisation study for this Hub concept.
