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.
Capture Power said it would retain its commitment to the delivery of the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project after one of the consortium members pulled out. Drax said it was pulling out of the major scheme to develop technology to store emissions amid concerns over Government green policy changes. The company blamed the “drastically different financial and regulatory environment” which has seen the wholesale price of electricity drop and moves by the Government to rein back support for low carbon technology.
The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) has said that Husky Energy’s Development Plan Amendment for the White Rose Extension Project, offshore Newfoundland, has received conditional approval from the Board along with the federal and provincial governments.
