National carbon mapping and infrastructure plan – Australia : full report

1st September 2009

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

The Carbon Storage Taskforce developed this Plan under the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative. This Plan describes the risks and opportunities presented by transport and storage of carbon dioxide, acting as Australia’s roadmap to prioritising the development of suitable storage sites and the necessary pipeline infrastructure.

Deployment of carbon dioxide (CO2) transport and storage in Australia is technically viable and, under appropriate management regimes, safe. However, current geological and engineering activities must be accelerated and maintained over the next decade if the nation is to be in a position to capture the opportunity for commercial deployment beyond 2020.
