The costs of CO2 storage: post-demonstration CCS in the EU

15th July 2011

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

The companies, scientists, academics and environmental NGOs that together make up the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) have undertaken a ground-breaking study into the costs of CO2  storage based on new data provided exclusively by ZEP member organisations on existing pilot and planned demonstration projects. This report describes the bottom-up approach taken using cost components provided by ZEP members. In order to cover the range of potential storage configurations and still provide reliable cost estimates, storage was divided into six main typical cases, according to major differentiating elements. Including depleted oil and gas fields (DOGF) vs. deep saline aquifers (SA), offshore vs. onshore, and whether existing wells were re-usable.
