Lessons Learned from UK CCS Programmes

The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) is today launching an important new report entitled "Lessons Learned – Lessons and Evidence Derived from UK CCS Programmes, 2008 – 2015".
Particularly focusing on the recent CCS Competition, which was cancelled in November 2015, the report sets out 36 key lessons for industry and policy makers. These lessons are based on interviews with the two preferred bidders; the Shell Peterhead project and the Capture Power White Rose project, as well as interviews with a number of other companies interested in developing CCS projects.
Speaking from a Joint Workshop being held by the CCSA and the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum, Dr. Luke Warren, Chief Executive of the CCSA, commented:
"The CCSA has partnered with Patrick Dixon, former Expert Chair of the Office for CCS in DECC, on this report. Patrick has worked tirelessly with the CCSA and project developers to capture the important insights into the delivery of large-scale CCS projects.
The report highlights that there were no technical barriers to delivery but that any future CCS programme will have to address a number of outstanding commercial challenges. The report also clearly shows that CCS has significant potential for rapid cost reduction.
The Government has confirmed its intention to develop a new approach to CCS, and we look forward to working with them to build on these lessons and ensure the successful delivery of CCS".ned from UK CCS Programmes
