The Proposed Peterhead CCS Project
RGU Garthdee Campus
Shell, with strategic support from SSE, are looking to develop the world’s first full-scale gas carbon capture and storage (CCS) project – the Peterhead CCS Project. The proposed project would see 10 to 15 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions captured from the Peterhead Power Station in the North East of Scotland and transported by pipeline offshore for geological storage deep under the North Sea.
In March 2013, the Peterhead CCS Project was chosen as one of two CCS demonstration projects in the UK to progress to the next stage of the UK Government’s CCS Commercialisation Competition funding. This funding allowed the Project to progress through the detailed design phase known as Front-End Engineering Design, or FEED.
The Project is nearing the end of this FEED phase of development. This talk will provide an overview of the project and a status on recent developments."
