Overview

CCP1: 2000-2004 – SCREENING/PROOF OF CONCEPT

The first phase of work focussed on screening potential cost-effective capture technologies for large-scale deployment. Key elements during this phase included:

  • 200 capture technologies screened
  • Identified pre-combustion, post-combustion and oxy-firing technologies to deliver significant capture cost reduction
  • Pioneered risk-based approach for geological site selection, operation and closure
  • Developed new storage monitoring tools
  • Published book of full technical results

CCP2: 2004-2009 – INTENSIVE DEVELOPMENT

The objective of the second phase was to further development of technologies identified from CCP1 to take forward for field demonstration. Key achievements included:

  • Two technologies potentially made ready for field demonstration
  • Novel capture technologies identified
  • Storage science, with focus on well integrity, built up through systematic R&D: publication of definitive book on storage
  • Engagement with policymakers, NGOs, media
  • CSLF Recognition Award in 2009
  • Published book of full technical results

CCP3: 2009-2013 – DEMONSTRATION

This phase of work is dedicated to widespread testing and deployment of viable CCS technologies. Key projects include:

  • Field demonstrations of FCC and OTSG oxy-firing capture technologies
  • Continued development of novel technologies
  • Economic baseline modelling for all scenarios
  • Storage R&D and trialling of field monitoring technologies
  • Development of Certification Framework
  • Storage contingencies modelling completed
