Presentation Abstract:

CTSCo’s Surat Basin Carbon Capture and Storage Project

The objective of the Surat Basin carbon capture and storage (CCS) project is to demonstrate the viability of carbon capture from a coal-fired power station and the effective permanent storage or use of the captured CO2. The project is intended as a first step toward large scale CCS within a Surat Basin hub, with emissions from multiple generators and other industrial sources being captured and safely stored. The CTSCo project comprises a proposed demonstration-scale CO2 capture plant and a CO2 sequestration site located in the southern Surat Basin.

To date, CTSCo has investigated several potential storage reservoirs located close to CO2 sources in central Queensland and are currently focused on the appraisal of a site located in the southern Surat Basin with industrial-scale sequestration potential. As part of the project, CTSCO has initiated and supported a range of research and development projects associated with the monitoring and verification of injected CO2, storage reservoir evaluation, containment de-risking and environmental monitoring.

The presentation will provide an overview of the CTSCo CCS project along with a description of some of the R&D projects with potential relevance to both the CCS and the petroleum industries.
