Development of an Offshore Storage Industry
The Crown Estate is owner of the CO2 storage rights on the UK continental shelf. The presentation will explore pathways and mechanisms for facilitating the development of an offshore CO2 storage sector beyond the governmentís current delivery programme. This will include removing barriers to exploration and accessing sites, addressing gaps in regulation and identifying possible interventions to shape a market for storage services.
The Crown Estate manages a hugely diverse £8 billion property portfolio across the UK. Guided by our core values of commercialism, integrity and stewardship, our role is to manage and enhance the value of our assets and to return any surplus to the Treasury for the benefit of the nation. Over the last ten years The Crown Estate has paid a total of £2 billion to the Treasury. The energy & infrastructure portfolio within The Crown Estate performs a unique and exciting role around the UKís coastline and beyond, supporting and facilitating the deployment of low carbon and renewable energy projects along with managing minerals and aggregates resources, and leasing the seabed for infrastructure such as pipelines and cables.
Dr Chris Satterley, Technical Consultant, EON Newbuild and Technology Ltd
- Reducing secondary emissions, including process solvent and degradation products, to air in post combustion capture
- How incomplete knowledge about secondary emissions to air can lead to project delays
- E.ON's work to improve understanding of secondary emissions to air
James Watt, technical manager CCS and renewable energy, AMEC
The deployment of CCS in the UK will require significant transportation infrastructure. This presentation provides an overview of issues affecting deployment, key lessons learned and presents potential deployment scenarios for the UK. One of the core issues is cost and the relationship between single source pipelines and networks will be examined as well as the costs associated with transport solutions.
James is the technical manager CCS and Renewable Energy for AMEC. In this role, James provides engineering management and consultancy on a number of projects in all renewable energy fields particularly in Carbon Capture and Storage, including capture and transportation projects. He also supports the CCSA and EI on the technical challenges of CCS. James is the author of CCS infrastructure studies for the Mersey & Dee basin, Teesside, Scotland and Humber and was the lead engineer on a large scale CCS transportation FEED study. James supports the Masters degrees in CCS at the University of Edinburgh and is also chairman of the Energy Industries Councilís CO2 Forum.
In our survey of Carbon Capture Journal readers in the UK as part of the planning of this event, we found that:
Ideas for getting CCS moving faster in the UK included: setting up the central North Sea CO2 storage hub; investment in lower costs CCS technologies; public education; EC lobbying for a more effective emissions trading scheme; getting a final investment decision on a project made; power companies seeing CCS as part of a portfolio of different types of power capacity; a EU wide program funded by all EU governments rather than oil companies; government assuming responsibility for leaks after a certain period; increasing carbon price; backing from Green Investment Bank; providing guaranteed return on capital.
