Just a fraction of those offered sites by the NSTA have come forward - and an offer made doesn't mean it will be accepted. We explore what those successful companies have to consider.
Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS)
The COP26 climate conference is now behind us and we are left with mixed feelings about the future health of our planet. While some summarised the conference as “blah blah blah”, others talked about constructive discussions and breakthroughs.
Deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is moving too slowly in order to meet the Paris Agreement climate goals, according to new Scottish-led research.
There is just a fortnight to go until the UK Government could reveal the two projects that will form its carbon capture and storage (CCS) vanguard.
Arguably, much of the animosity directed towards carbon capture and storage (CCS) in recent times has seemed more than a tad harsh.
‘It’s unhelpful to cherry-pick technologies’ – industry bodies and research groups hit back at CCS critics
Industry bodies have rallied to defend carbon capture and storage (CCS) after a report claimed it wouldn’t be able to deliver the emissions reductions needed in the coming years.
New investment in the energy transition can be a “crucial pathway” out of the latest downturn for North Sea firms, according to the head of the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA).
A leading analyst has described it as “disappointing” that the Chancellor that put a vital net zero technology lower down his list of priorities than repairing potholes.
A turbulent year of extreme weather events and global politics has drawn to a close with the stark warning from scientists that climate change is happening faster than previously predicted.
Scientists from Edinburgh University have received funding for a £1.4 million research project to investigate the storage of hydrogen in the subsurface.
The recognition of Peterhead port as a key transfer location for carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been heralded as important to the long-term future of the North Sea.
We have 12 years to clean up our carbon act on a global scale or face catastrophic climate change: that was the stark warning from the IPCC in October. The following month, the UK Government reaffirmed its support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a tested technology that will deliver massive reductions in carbon emissions – and the Acorn CCS Project in north east Scotland secured a licence to select a suitable North Sea CO2 storage site.
Scottish and Mexican scientists are working together to help support Mexico's efforts to develop carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) capacity.
A call to action from the UK Government to form a clear government policy on Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) in the North Sea has been made.
Scottish and Canadian scientists have strengthened links on climate protection through Carbon Capture and Storage research
The creation of a Scottish CO2 (carbon dioxide) Hub can unlock UK and European potential for carbon capture and storage (CCS), according to a new report.
North Sea nations will hold the key in Europe’s transition to a low-carbon economy but political ambition will be essential. A report by Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) made the analysis as it issued a report which calls for specific policy support and wider political ambition within the EU. The European Commission will meet stakeholders today in Edinburgh to discuss a strategic vision for energy infrastructure in the North Sea basin.
