The role of CCUS for a low-emissions Western Australia
Allison Hortle and Ludovic Ricard of CSIRO
The recent modelling by the IEA suggests that Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) continues to be one of many key technologies necessary to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. For various industries in Western Australia with high CO2 emissions CCUS will be an important abatement option. Western Australia is in the fortunate position to have abundant carbon storage potential in its sedimentary basins, which have been characterized at various scales.
In this presentation we will discuss the CCUS landscape in Western Australia by providing an overview of historic geological storage characterization studies, current projects and CCUS Hub initiatives under development. We will talk in more detail about CCUS requirements and activities in southwestern WA and will show results of a CO2 injection experiment at a research field site, the CSIRO In-Situ Laboratory (ISL), established in 2019 south of Perth. The ISL is a unique field site for fluid injection experiments to de-risk the potential impact of a fault zone on CO2 storage.
