Repsol is studying the potential of a giant geological carbon capture and storage project in Sakakemang in Indonesia.
Wood Group Kenny (WGK) is set to provide technical advisory services for carbon capture storage (CCS) policies in a framework agreement with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The four year agreement will see WGK support DECC in ensuring the UK CCS policies are underpinned by robust technical evidence and provide independent advice on the technical understanding of CCS. The company's previous experience in CCS includes the Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage project being developed by oil major Shell and Southern Energy (SSE).
A project for a coal-fuelled power station with carbon capture and storage (CSS) technology at Grangemouth has secured £4.2 million from the Scottish and UK governments. The money has been awarded to the Seattle-based Summit Power Group for research and feasibility studies for its proposed Caledonia Clean Energy Project. The 570 MW coal-gasification station would be fitted with CCS technology, which captures emissions from fossil fuel power plants and permanently stores them underground. The scheme’s backers said it was designed to capture 90% of CO2 emissions, which would then be carried along existing on-shore and sub-sea pipelines to be permanently stored 2km beneath the North Sea.
