Carbon Capture and Storage – A Roadmap for Scotland

Detailed assessment of possible aquifer stores to refine Scotland’s CO2 storage assets;

Present a view of the skills and capacity building needed for CCS; and

Stakeholder/public information and communication issues

This work involves many of the partners from the original study as well as involving a number of new partners. The Scottish Government has again been the largest single financial contributor to this successor project.  The project is due to be completed by the end of 2010.

In summary, we believe that Scotland has a number of advantages and existing strengths in the CCS sector

Academic and Research Expertise

Storage Capacity and Opportunities

Engineering and Offshore skills and knowhow

Development of the academic Scottish Centre for Carbon Storage

Consortium approach for Scottish CCS Joint Study demonstrated potential that exists in Scotland

Opportunities for Scotland to demonstrate leadership in CCS especially in international collaboration terms

Major test facilities and collaborative  projects with potential for more

Large scale single point emitters

Opportunity to develop a hub or cluster approach

Research project showed potential for Central and Northern North Sea to store significant amounts of carbon dioxide from both Scotland and elsewhere

Offshore storage capacity not always available in other areas of Europe

Investment opportunities in replacement thermal generation means that CCS  has an opportunity to become part of the energy mix

Significant skills and experience in the oil and gas sector

Opportunities for diversification for the oil and gas sector

Supply chain already established

Significant presence of energy related skills and companies already in Scotland

Potential use of existing infrastructure in some instances
