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.
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)

CCS Projects in AustraliaSource: CO2CRC 2012, CCS Activity in Australia
South West Hub ProjectInitial stage of proving up geological storage:• Seismic modelling• Drilling stratigraphic well• Legislation and JV
South West Hub Project 2010-2012: proving up storage 2012-2015: pipeline development (Kwinana to Lesueur) Post 2015: pipeline development (Lesueur to Perdaman)
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
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
Callide ProjectStage 1 on track: retrofitting oxy-fuel technology to an existing power plant.17 000 tonnes CO2
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
Timeframe for CCS Deployment(Treasury SGLP Core Scenario)
Summary• CCS is important to Australia• We have significant potential• Much is underway but much remains to be done!
