CCS Pipeline Grows by 10 Large-Scale Facilities Globally

In June, we added 10 CCS facilities to our global database, bringing the total number of CCS facilities in various stages of development to 59 with a capture capacity of more than 127 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). The facilities added continue trends in CCS deployment that include innovative applications such as natural gas power, negative emissions and cement, as well as stacked and offshore geologic storage.  The US adds nine facilities, while the UK adds one facility. 



Climate Ambition in the Context of CV-19 Recovery: Brad Page in Conversation with Lord Nicholas Stern

Our CEO Brad Page recently had an online conversation with Lord Nicholas Stern to discuss climate ambition in the context of economic recovery from COVID-19. 

They discussed a range of topics, including building back better from the COVID-19 global crisis with sustainable recovery packages leading to transformative growth; net-zero commitments; the challenge of continuing the momentum on climate change, and CCS deployment; mechanisms to deliver the rapid change needed to accelerate action on climate change within the recovery, and CCS alongside it.

The Institute, OGCI and Pale Blue Dot Enegry Launch World First CO2 Storage Resource

We are pleased to announce the launch of the CO2 Storage Resource Catalogue, the first independent worldwide evaluation of geologic CO2 storage resource assessments. The database has been developed in partnership with The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) and Pale Blue Dot Energy. The Resource is a pioneering initiative to accelerate the deployment of CCUS by supporting the consistent evaluation of storage resources.



New Institute Report: Organisations and Policies Supporting Large-Scale CCS Deployment

While there are currently relatively few CCS facilities in operation and in development, there are significant differences in the enabling environments for CCS deployment. 

This report, from our Senior Consultant - Policy & Finance Dominic Rassool, explores the potential role of Delivery Bodies to help enable the deployment of CCS. It also provides an overview of the organisations involved in the deployment of large-scale CCS facilities, and the policy and regulatory frameworks that have supported this deployment. 

Inaugural Meeting of the Southeast Asia CCUS Working Group

CCUS has a unique and critical role to play in reducing the rapidly increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of the Southeast Asia region. Through extensive engagements, the Institute observed various areas of common interest for collaboration across the region on CCUS topics and as a result established the Southeast Asia CCUS Working Group.
