  • 1. KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONSCCS PROGRESS IN CANADA: Dr Carmen Dybwad – IPAC-CO2CCUS IN THE UNITED STATES: Judi Greenwald – C2ESCCS IN AUSTRALIA: Dick Wells – National CCS Council
  • 2. Carbon, Capture and Storagein AustraliaDick WellsChair, Australian National CCS CouncilGCCSI International Members Meeting - Calgary, Canada - 11 October 2012
  • 3. Australia’s fossil fuel relianceCCS is the only technology currently available which cansignificantly reduce emissions from fossil fuels. Australia’s electricity generation by Australia’s Emissions Profile: energy source, 2009-10: Source: 2009 emissions from the National Source: BREE 2012, Energy in Australia 2012. Greenhouse Gas Inventory 2011, DCCEE analysis.
  • 4. Australia’s Emissions Targets and the Clean Energy Future PlanAustralia has committed to reducing emissions by:5% below 2000 levels by 2020; and80% below 2000 levels by 2050 (proposed)
  • 5. Electricity Generation Mix (Australian Treasury Core Policy Scenario)Source: Commonwealth of Australia (2011) ‘Strong Growth, Low Pollution: Modelling a Carbon Price’.
  • 6. Australian CCS Progress Legislative Certainty Knowledge- Sharing Storage Community Acceptance Stakeholder R&D Engagement Project Demonstration and Financing
  • 7. Australian CCS Achievements ProjectDemonstration • CCS Flagship projects • Large scale pilot and small scale demonstration projects Storage • Storage exploration activities Legislative Certainty • First GHG injection tenement R&D • CO2 pipeline standard study
  • 8. Australian CCS Achievements Community • CCS Public Awareness Raising Acceptance and Communication Strategy Financing • Finance Working GroupKnowledge- Sharing • Council submissions to raise the profile of CCSStakeholderEngagement
  • 9. Australia’s basins ranked for CO2 potential
  • 10. CCS Projects in AustraliaSource: CO2CRC 2012, CCS Activity in Australia
  • 11. South West Hub ProjectInitial stage of proving up geological storage:• Seismic modelling• Drilling stratigraphic well• Legislation and JV
  • 12. South West Hub Project 2010-2012: proving up storage 2012-2015: pipeline development (Kwinana to Lesueur) Post 2015: pipeline development (Lesueur to Perdaman)
  • 13. CarbonNet Project• Location: brown coal and a large electricity generation hub.• 3 million tonnes of CO2 a year• Currently in prefeasibility stage with exploration activities being undertaken.Geological modelof the Gippsland Basin
  • 14. Otway Project• Demonstration project in Victoria by the CO2CRC• Stage 1: Over 65,000 tonnes CO2 successfully injected into a depleted gas reservoir• Stage 2: Experiments are almost complete for CO2 storage in saline formations
  • 15. Gorgon Project
  • 16. Callide ProjectStage 1 on track: retrofitting oxy-fuel technology to an existing power plant.17 000 tonnes CO2
  • 17. Challenges for CCS Deployment in Australia• Understanding storage capacity• Reducing capital and operating costs• Developing multi-user transport networks and hubs.• Creating a nationally consistent regulatory frameworks• Ensuring community acceptance• Extending CCS to gas-fired power generation, LNG-processing and large-scale industrial
  • 18. Timeframe for CCS Deployment(Treasury SGLP Core Scenario)
  • 19. Summary• CCS is important to Australia• We have significant potential• Much is underway but much remains to be done!
