Project Pioneer. Transporting CO2: a non-confidential report

14th June 2012

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

This report discusses the basics of CO2 transportation and delves deeper into the design and safety considerations of the two pipelines systems that were proposed for Project Pioneer. Project Pioneer was intended to be among the world's largest, fully-integrated carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems. The CO2 was to be transported for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in nearby oil fields as well as for permanent storage in deep saline formations.

The report also explores lessons learnt from existing CO2 pipelines that are used elsewhere.
