PESA QLD: Lunch Presentation, 27th April – Prof Alf Garnett

$33.00 – $100.00

Guest Speaker(s): Professor Andrew (Alf) Garnett

Professor Andrew (Alf) Garnett
Director, Centre for Natural Gas and Director, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Program, UQ

For more than a decade Professor Andrew Garnett has led a large multidisciplinary research program focussing on varied aspects of Queensland’s natural gas industry including social and environmental impact, and cost and supply optimisation. He has more than 30 years’ international experience within multinational companies across conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon projects, and is well respected for his contribution to the global transition to a low emissions economy. 

Professor Garnett began his career in the oil and gas sector, prior to consulting on unconventional developments. Prior to joining UQ, he led the 500MW ZeroGen integrated gasification combined cycle and carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, ultimately closing the project down as CEO. 

Most recently, as the Director, UQ CCS Program, Professor Garnett led a three-year study identifying strategies to make material emissions cuts in Queensland as well as to enable low carbon baseload power, deliver significant benefits for regional employment, and stimulate the hydrogen economy.  

He has been a reviewer for the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook (natural gas) and Energy Technology Perspectives. 

This month PESA and ASEG welcomes Professor Andrew (Alf) Garnett to present a technical luncheon entitled:

“CCUS – Both Essential Abatement Technology and a Conundrum”

Presentation Abstract:

CCUS – Both Essential Abatement Technology and a Conundrum

Many if not all credible, deep decarbonisation scenarios include a significant role for CCUS both for energy and for other hard to abate sectors such as steel, cement and chemicals. Further, risks of “overshoot” (ref. IPCC, AR6) are increasing, leading to an increasing recognition that in future Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technology will be needed. This puts further pressure on developing large scale CCS hub projects in general and developing suitable “sinks” in particular. But are we sure we know what ‘suitable’ is? What key information is still needed to progress investment? And, globally, are they likely to be where they are needed?
