CCP Project Factsheet:
Oxy-Fuel Once Through Steam Generators (OTSG) Pilot Test

April 2015

Provides an overview of a project in which the CO2 Capture Project, joined by Cenovus Energy, Devon Canada, Praxair and Statoil, is piloting oxy-fuel combustion technology to reduce CO2 emissions from once-through steam generators (OTSG). OTSG boilers are the primary source of CO2 emissions from in-situ production of heavy oil. The demonstration is part of the CCP's work to develop next-generation technologies that will make CO2 Capture and Storage a practical and cost-effective option for reducing CO2 emissions from fossil fuels.

CCP Project Factsheet:
Contingencies Program

April 2014

The CCP Contingencies program aims to identify anomalies that may lead to containment failure at a CO2 storage site and formulate an intervention plan using existing (or developing new) technologies. The program is a unique initiative that leverages existing industry expertise to favourably impact the future development of CCS. The CCP Storage, Monitoring and Verification (SMV) Team has been working with a cross-section of respected experts from academia, national labs and industry consultants on the first phases of the project, producing some intriguing results which may culminate in testing selected technologies in a field experiment.

CCP Project Factsheet:
Oxy-Combustion Fluid Catalytic Cracking Demonstration Field Testing of CO2 Capture Technology for Oil Refineries

September 2013

Provides an overview of a field demonstration the CCP is undertaking of an oxy-combustion capture technology on one of the processes in a refinery which generates the highest CO2 emissions – the Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit. The test is expected to bring closer to reality a more cost-effective technology capable of capturing up to 95% of FCC CO2 emissions, equating to some 20-30% of total CO2 emissions from a typical refinery.

Modular Borehole Monitoring design and field test

December 2012

Provides an overview of a project in which the CO2 Capture Project, joined by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the US Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB), is conducting field trial deployment of a specially designed Modular Borehole Monitoring system. This modular, flexible system monitors the behaviour of injected CO2 in the deep subsurface and is currently being field trialled in the US.

CCP Project Factsheet:
CO2 Stream Impurities: Impacts on geological storage performance and assurance
Phase 1 – Reservoir Simulation

February 2012

Provides an overview of a study the CCP is undertaking into the impact of CO2 stream impurities on geological storage of CO2. The potential for cost savings by delivering less pure CO2 streams to the storage reservoir are significant if it can be shown that these impurities do not adversely impact injectivity, conformance or containment. The CCP has completed Phase 1 of the study which involved the development of reservoir models to simulate injection and plume migration of CO2 streams from single and non-compressible gas impurities.

CCS Making It Happen

May 2008

A summary of discussions from a high-level stakeholder roundtable co-organised by Friends of Europe, The Bellona Foundation and the European Technology Platform for Zero Emission Fossil Fuel Power Plants (ETP-ZEP) with the support of the CO2 Capture Project and the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA).

This report presents the outcomes of Friends of Europe's roundtable debate 'Carbon Capture and Storage: Making it happen', held on Tuesday 27 May 2008. The roundtable discussed the role of carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in preventing climate change and the crucial issue of who would have to pay for it – industry, the EU or member states.

Storing CO2 Underground

April 2007

This is a publication from the International Energy Agency's GreenHouse Gas program on storing CO2 underground, using the CO2 Capture Project materials. Paper copies are available from

The booklet explains the geological storage of CO2 and answers the most frequently asked questions:

  • Can CO2 be stored deep underground?
  • What difference could CCS make to global warming?
  • How can CO2 be captured from industry?
  • Where can CO2 be geologically stored?
  • Why does CO2 stay underground?
  • Where are the good geological storage sites?
  • Where is CO2 geological storage happening today?
  • What is the future of CO2 geological storage?
