Some 6,500 km of CO2 pipelines has been operating for years, primarily in the United States. More recently, a number of these pipelines have been used for CO2 re-use or carbon capture and storage (CCS) operations in Europe and the Americas. Valuable experience and lessons learnt are available from these projects relevant for all phases of CO2 pipeline projects:, from early identification to execution and operation.
Based on a wide range of interviews and literature, Ecofys and SNC-Lavalin gathered information on 29 CO2 pipeline projects and then made the results accessible in a database. A reference manual was then written based on this information. This comprehensive document offers an overview of results and lessons learnt, serving as a guide to key issues on CO2 pipelines. The document relates to a number of examples in the database.
In this webinar, Frank Wiersma from Ecofys presented an overview of the study, discussing the process, lessons learnt, and findings relevant for the development, realisation and operation of CO2 pipelines.
This study was commissioned by the IEA GHG on behalf of the Global CCS Institute.
