  • IEA – WEO data from Current Policies Scenario (former Reference Scenario)
  • Background NotesExcerpt on IEA methodology from IEA’s “Energy Technology Perspectives 2010”:“The ETP 2010 Baseline scenario follows the Reference scenario to 2030 outlined in the World Energy Outlook 2009, and then extends it to 2050. It assumes governments introduce no new energy and climate policies. In contrast, the BLUE Map scenario (with several variants) is target-oriented: it sets the goal of halving global energy-related CO2 emissions by 2050 (compared to 2005 levels) and examines the least-cost means of achieving that goal through the deployment of existing and new low-carbon technologies.”CCS alone will not enable us to meet our climate policy objectivesWe propose to use utilization piece to learn and make storage in saline formations a reality
  • The development of catalytic technologies capable of converting CO2 into revenue generating chemicals, such as methane & methanol, which can be sold to offset the costs associated with carbon management, is a rapidly developing area of research. The energy required to drive this endothermic conversion mustbe provided by carbon friendly solar or electrical sources, waste power from the grid or industrial processes, or industrial waste heat. Many of the catalysts under investigation can use either H2O or H2 as the hydrogen source offering a unique degree of flexibility in the feedstock supply.C1 products are a flexible target product because they can be used directly as fuels (CH4 and CH3OH) or are already widely used in the industrial chemical market. This is advantageous because the infrastructure and technologies required to transport and utilize these products downstream already exists and is widely deployed.Technical challenges in this field involve developing efficient catalysts capable of utilizing non-conventional forms of energy to drive the endothermic catalytic conversion of CO2. For solid state systems, such as CuGaFeO2 based delafossites, the combination of elements and compositional loadings that can be used in place of Cu, Ga, and Fe exceeds 10,000. This number of possible catalysts is completely unapproachable from an experimental standpoint. In this regard, high through put computational methods are being used to accelerate catalyst design by screening these new catalysts and then the most promising candidates then synthesized experimentally.For photo-based utilization, most popular catalysts can only utilized ultraviolet light to drive a catalytic reaction. In this regard, developing new materials that can also use visible and near infrared light to drive reactions is a key research topic. New approaches have investigated quantum dots to sensitize popular metal oxide catalysts, such as TiO2, and improve its use of the solar spectrum increasing its efficiency by over 10 fold. Also of interest are approaches which can efficiently convert solar light to thermal energy. In this area, plasmonic systems based on Au and ZnO are being used to efficiently drive thermal catalytic reactions using photon exciation.Electrocatalyst technologies always suffer from “overpotential” inefficiences associated with the energy required to overcome the activation barrier of the reaction. These overpotentials also drive unwanted side reactions that further reduce efficiency and impact catalytic selectivity. A new nanocluster based on 25 Au atoms and 18 organothiol stabilizing ligands has been shown to overcome these overpotential issues. The unique size of this nanocluster produces quantum confinement effects that give it a ground state anionic charge that leads to enhanced interactions with CO2. Ultimately, these Au25 clusters have been demonstrated to be the most efficienct CO2 electrocatalysts ever reported converting CO2 with no appreciable overpotential and thus nearly 100 % efficiency. Developing highly reactive “traditional” catalysts on high surface area supports which can utilize low-temperature waste heat is also a priorty area of research. In this regard, small Cu nanoparticles supported on high surface area ZnO have been shown to outperform catalysts with micron sized Cu materials. This nano-sized Cu challenges current commercially available catalysts.
  • Least cost abatement: CCS = 14% to 2050 (17% in 2050)$3 trillion extra capital if no CCS.CCS = In 2050 CCS contributes 7 Gt/42Gt reduction12 x Canada’s current energy related CO2 emissions (EIA figure for 2010 at 548.754) or 1.2 x US’s current energy related CO2 emissions (EIA figure for 2010 at 5610 Mtpa)
  • Around the world, the eight large-scale CCS projects in operation can store more than 23 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This is not an insignificant figure – it is more abatement than the total country-level reductions in Australia, through all of the climate policies to date.Then there are a further nine projects currently under construction and in 2015 these projects will increase the total to over 37 million tonnes of stored CO2 a year.
  • This is approximately 70 per cent of the IEA’s target for mitigation activities for CCS by 2015.But by 2020, the IEA’s projections for CCS deployment require about 130 projects storing more than 258 tonnes of CO2 per year.Clearly we will be well short of this.Ramp up to achieve the needed mitigation by CCS of 7Gt of CO2 in the year 2050 is enormous. This is over 300 times what is currently being stored.
  • This nearer term goal for 2020 continues to be harder to reach as the potential for projects to store CO2 in the year 2020 from active and planned continues to decrease.In the current economic environment, we are seeing less large projects and more smaller projects and the expected capacities for networks and clusters being reduced in the near term.
  • In October 2012 we were talking about a net increase of one project for the previous year making 75 in total.Since October we have removed three projects from our tracking list - 2 in Europe which were put on hold and one in the US that is no longer under active development – reducing this total to 72.However a welcome trend since 2010 is a steady increase of projects making a positive FID and moving into construction.Also great to see another project moving into construction (being the Execute Stage) which was the North West Redwater Partnership’s Alberta Carbon Trunk Line ("ACTL") with North West Sturgeon Refinery CO2 Stream project. Construction is expected to break ground in early 2013, with the plant scheduled to commence operations in 2015. The North West Sturgeon Refinery will be the first oil refinery to include CCS in its original design.In more good news it is anticipated that Summit Power’s Texas Clean Energy Project and NRG Energy Parish CCS Project could be in a position to reach an FID in the first half of 2013.We are also looking forward to two projects in the US that are expected to become operational in 2013, being Air Products Steam Methane Reformer EOR project in Texas and ADM’s Illinois Industrial CCS Project. Our concern is that not enough projects are moving beyond the Identify, Define and Evaluate stages to sustain the critically needed progress. The problem is the CCS cost gap which can only be reduced by more research, development and demonstration. We need to see more incentives around the world, including in North America, to help accelerate new CCS projects or we reduce our chances of world-wide deployment in the required timeframe
  • Thirteen of the 17 LSIPs in operation or under construction (‘Active’) are located in North America – that is more than 75 per cent.The US alone accounts for nearly half of the world’s Active LSIPs including the first two integrated power projects under construction.Although North America has the most advanced CCS portfolio in the world, here too there are not enough new projects in the pipeline to continue making progress and build on the lessons learnt from the earlier projects.
  • This Figure shows us the spread across storage types for the large scale integrated projects.In the short to medium term CO2 EOR is taking a larger role in the current suite of projects – with now over half of the large-scale integrated projects having CO2 EOR as their primary storage option (up 5 % since 2011).As an additional source of revenue, CO2 EOR has become a strong driver supporting projects, particularly in North America, China and the Middle East.When we last reported in October 2012 amongst the changes within the set of projects from 2011 to 2012 is that eight previously-identified projects were cancelled, put on hold or restructured. These were offset by nine newly identified projects, and of these, five were in China.China is a fast emerging force in CCS.This spike of new projects in 2012 has meant that China has overtaken Canada to now having the third highest potential to store CO2 through CCS projects.Importantly all of the newly-identified projects in China are investigating the use of EOR.
  • Some additional thoughts on CCUS CO2-EOR presents an important opportunity to advance CCS technology and store large quantities of CO2 in the process. The enabling aspect of CO2-EOR can increase the number of near term demonstrations which in turn: (1) prove and improve CCS technology, (2) reduce CCS cost, (3) help gain public and policymaker acceptance because of the similarities between conventional CO2-EOR and CCS, (4) build a knowledgeable CCS workforce, and (5) help develop CO2 transportation networksThese benefits should significantly improve the prospects for world-wide CCS deployment efforts.
  • Nevertheless…Current assessments of the potential for storage in depleted oil and gas fields strongly suggest that deep saline formations will provide the bulk of storage in the long term. So we must continue to develop saline and other geologic storage options. CO2 revenue is presently not sufficient to cover the additional expense of CCS in high cost capture scenarios such as power generation and cement production. Other incentives are necessary until we can bring down the cost down.And while there is confidence that CO2-EOR permanently stores the vast majority of the CO2 injected during the process, storage accounting has not been required of CO2-EOR projects. Therefore, policymakers should develop fit-for-purpose regulatory standards for CO2-EOR projects in order to qualify as storage and GHG abatement.
  • I want to note and show my appreciation for the strong support that the Canadian and US federal, provincial and state governments have provided to CCS – and encourage it to continue. Both countries have been generous in their financial support for CCS research and demonstration.Both countries also recognize CCS as compliance pathway in their respective performance standards for electric utilities. There has also been considerable CCS leadership demonstrated at the individual provincial and state levels including financial incentives and, importantly, development of legal and regulatory frameworks to eliminate CCS barrier issues. I’m optimistic that there will be more to come. In the last U.S. Congress legislation was proposed that would include CCS in a clean energy portfolio standard. Senator Rockefeller announced that he would be submitting new legislation that will include incentives for growth and development of CCS. And ideas are being vetted for a production tax credit associated with carbon capture and storage through EOR that could be revenue neutral or even positive to the government due to the additional tax revenue on the produced oil.These are examples of the type of creative, forward looking thinking needed to ready CCS for world-wide deployment.
  • This slide is Taken from a study conducted by the Institute and published in 2011 that drew on a number of reputable studies of low carbon technologies. The big picture clearly shows that CCS is a cost-competitive technology compared to other CO2 mitigation options. But we don't want to stop here. Additional research and demonstration will substantially reduce the costs of CCS and other emerging low-carbon technologies and improve the chances of meeting global climate change objectives. Difficulties arise as CCS is often not treated equivalently to other low-carbon technologies in policy settings and government support.Like many emerging technologies, CCS faces barriers that discourage new projects from emerging and prevent planned projects moving forward. Funding for CCS demonstration projects, while still considerable faces future challenges as there is limited money on the horizon for new CCS projects... It has also been realised that the level of funding support still available will service fewer projects than initially anticipated. The relatively higher-cost CCS projects (for example in the power, steel and cement sectors) require strong government support continuing into the operational phase. In order to achieve emission reductions in the most efficient and effective way, governments should provide necessary support for development of all viable low-carbon technologies on an equivalent basis. .
  • In Norway and Canada, two events highlight the benefits of public and private sector support in advancing cost-effective technologies. In Canada, it was an exciting development to see Shell’s Quest project announce in September that it will move forward and capture and store more than one million tonnes of CO2 produced at the Athabasca Oil Sands Project. It is also very encouraging that Quest will be storing CO2 in deep saline formations. There are two others in construction that will also be storing in deep saline formations being Gorgon and ADM’s Illinois Industrial CCS project. FutureGen is also planning to store CO2 in deep saline formations.In Norway, the US$1 billion Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) was opened in May 2012 and is an industrial-scale test centre for post-combustion carbon capture carbon capture.This adds to a number of large pilots that have been successfully demonstrating different capture operations within Europe and the world, and will contribute to efforts to reduce the costs associated with capture.The knowledge generated by both of these facilities will drive innovation around the world.It is noteworthy that power generation has yet to be demonstrated at scale.It was however very promising when Southern Company’s post-combustion Plant Barry in the US recently became the world’s largest (at 25 MW) integrated CCS project at a coal-fired power plant earlier this year and is storing CO2 in saline formations.This will complement the integrated gas power plant that has been operating at Lacq since 2010.Going forward commercial-scale demonstration of capture requires application at increasing scales with integration into industrial processes and power stations.It is promising that there are two large-scale demonstration power generation projects currently under construction with both scheduled to begin operation in 2014. They are: Kemper County in the US and Boundary Dam in Canada. More early commercial-scale demonstration projects like these are needed to reduce cost and optimise performance through learning by doing and to convince the public and policy makers that CCS is safe and effective.
  • Climate change legislation must not be delayed. Timely and stable policy support is required to deal with the barriers to implementation of CCS. This will drive industry confidence, encouraging more innovation, and ultimately reducing capital and operating costs.To achieve emission reductions in the most efficient and effective way governments should ensure that CCS is not disadvantaged. They must review their policies to ensure that CCS can play a full part in the portfolio of low-carbon technologies.Funding for CCS demonstration projects by governments and industry should be accelerated and incentives increased to develop the technology and bring down costs through innovation.Sharing expertise and learning from CCS projects around the world must be encouraged to ensure that progress is made as quickly as possible. Creating a business case and managing the technology is a complex and difficult process, so capturing and using lessons from other projects is vital. Importantly, this knowledge must be shared with developing countries where 70 per cent of CCS deployment must occur by 2050.

    23. 23. Utilization Could be a Key Driver For CCS• CCS is an essential part of the long-term global solution to climate change, but it requires an accelerated effort• CCS has no market driver to catalyze an industry – Regulations that place a value on CO2 emissions are unlikely anytime soon – First-generation technologies are too costly: >$100 / tonne CO2 captured and hCOE by >80 percent – Very challenging to incentivize CCS demos and jumpstart CCS industry• U.S. Department of Energy / Office of Fossil Energy research will greatly reduce CCS cost, but incentives are required for deployment – Absent CO2 emission value, cost per tonne CO2 will approach levels that catalyze EOR• Focusing more closely on EOR will drive technology development to commercialization – EOR is a high-value, high-volume use of CO2 – EOR could potentially utilize CO2 from 60 GW of power plants – EOR will catalyze CCS technologies while providing economic drivers for commercial projects

    46. 46. Discussion Topics• What are the top two lessons you learned from the early deployment efforts in CCS/CCUS that you can take forward to subsequent projects?• How has the landscape for CCS/CCUS in North America changed since the start of the early demonstrations? Given the current landscape, how would you approach a CCS/CCUS project development today—if at all?• What in your view have been and continue to be the principal barriers impeding industry investment in and deployment of CCS/CCUS along the value chain?• How do you see the availability of low cost natural gas in North America impacting CCS and CCUS, especially for CO2-EOR projects?• What do you see going forward would be needed for making the CCS/CCUS business case in North America?• During this past year some in the U.S. Congress have suggested using a carbon tax as mechanism for putting a price on carbon and reducing CO2 emissions.

    48. 48. Discussion Topics• It has been suggested that for CO2-EOR to qualify as storage, it should be subject to regulatory standards for MMV and long-term storage equivalent to those applicable to other types of CO2 storage. Do you agree or disagree, and why? – If you agree, how would you define equivalent? – If you disagree, what might be an appropriate approach for CO2-EOR?
    49. 49. Discussion Topics• CO2-EOR operations may differ from a dedicated source to sink storage model in a number of ways including: – Common pipelines where co-mingled streams of A- CO2 and N-CO2 lose their identity – CO2 recycling and reuse – The potential use of geologic reservoirs as buffers for EOR demand. How can a legal and regulatory framework accommodate these differences?
    50. 50. Discussion Topics• What additional legal and regulatory policies and/or incentives can be pursued to help more demonstration and early mover projects get underway in the near-term and ultimately lead to large scale CCS deployment?
    51. 51. Discussion Topics• Under the European Emission Trading System Directive, each component of the CCS chain (capture, transport and storage) is separately permitted and an obligation to surrender allowances does not arise for emissions verified as captured and transported for permanent storage to a facility permitted in accordance with the CCS Directive. How should CCS and emission compliance requirements be handled in Canada and the United States?

    60. 60. Discussion Topics• What is on the horizon, and how far out is that horizon, for dramatically reducing the cost of CO2 capture? To what extent can novel capture systems be used to offset carbon emissions to meet regulations?• What other out-of-the-box thinking on reducing capture cost should we be contemplating?• Given the costs, benefits, uncertainties and risks, what potential returns on investment for CO2- EOR is conducive to a business case? What would the cost of captured anthropogenic CO2 have to be for industry to make use of it for CO2-EOR (along with the permanent storage of the CO2) and how would the cost relate to world oil prices?• In terms of risk/reward, what do you see as the potential for recoverable resources in North America and the world realistically in the next 5 years? 10 years? To what extent is this potential sustainable as a path to CCS?• What do you see as the key issues and priorities that must be addressed?• During this past year, some in the U.S. Congress have suggested using a carbon tax as mechanism for putting a price on carbon and reducing CO2 emissions.
