Key Learning Outcomes & Case Studies Include

  • What is carbon capture and storage?
  • Carbon capture by emission sources and fundamental approaches: pre- and postcombustion, oxyfuel, industrial processes
  • Overview of current technologies applied (how to remove the CO2 from process streams, solvents, amines)
  • Evaluation of technologies: techno-commercial (including licensors)
  • Cost structure, learning curves: challenges and opportunities
  • CCS business models, CO2 pricing and negative emissions
  • CCS projects – overview, discussion and deep dives into case studies
  • H+CCS and other paths in the energy transition
  • Policy and regulatory perspectives – global initiatives and national nuances

About the Course

Carbon capture and storage is seen by many as a necessary transition technology whilst the world builds out the renewable energy system. And this is not limited to power generation. Today more than 95% of the world’s hydrogen is made from fossil fuels (coal and natural gas), so CCS can play a significant role in reducing the CO2 emissions related to this production. And the hydrogen sector is expected to grow exponentially across the globe in the coming years. For example, the UK recently set a target to produce five gigawatts of hydrogen by 2030, representing a 40-fold increase from the current situation. This ambition is replicated worldwide where national hydrogen strategies, often explicitly citing the need for decarbonising industrial sectors such as construction, steel and cement, have appeared regularly over the past year. The journey to a new, low emission energy system will be challenging and requires much innovation: momentum towards netzero continues to build which calls for many industrial sectors to find ways of decarbonising their operations. Hydrogen is likely to play a significant role, especially in sectors where eliminating emissions is particularly difficult. Early engagement with those low or zero-emissions projects will enable fast movers to reap the maximum from the opportunity presented.

The course aims to provide a practical guide to enable companies to make informed decisions and plans based on the real opportunities that are emerging as the global CCS sector develops. Delegates will be guided as to where early opportunities are most likely to lie, who is involved and how to get in front of them.

Who Will Benefit

  • Existing energy companies particularly those who are already part of the engineering, oil and gas, steel, construction and shipbuilding oil and gas supply chain and those looking to future-proof their capabilities.
  • The CCS clusters , well-placed to drive the regional industries forward, often including a significant hydrogen component.
  • Steel making, shipping, construction and automotive interests
  • Those companies seeking to enter the CCS sector and wider hydrogen value chain with its myriad opportunities in a market valued in the billions of dollars.

Watch Webinar

Our modern way of life depends on energy, but with the pressures of population growth, increased GDP and climate change, the way we gain and use our energy is changing.

In this webinar, Charley Rattan, international energy advisor, discusses how the energy transition is likely to evolve, the growing global importance of Offshore Wind and associated integration of Hydrogen, together with examples of pioneering APAC and Australian projects.

Objectives of the course: to describe CCS, the role it is and could be playing in the energy transition. To illustrate how it could be an Achilles’ heel for the fossil fuel sector. This course is designed to be as interactive as possible for participants.



  • CO2 emissions classification
  • CO2 emissions by sector
  • Netzero target setting
  • Importance of CCS

CCS – what it is

  • Carbon Capture (by emission sources)
    – Fundamental approaches: pre- and post-combustion, oxyfuel, industrial processes
    – Power plants (coal / NG combined cycle)
    – Industrial sectors (cement, iron and steel, refineries – in particular blue hydrogen)
  • Transport (pipelines, example: US CO2 pipeline infrastructure, compression, shipping)
  • Carbon Storage
    – CO2 / CCUS hazards. Safe CO2 operations
    – Compression
    – Subsurface sequestration (EOR, depleted reservoirs, saline aquifers, monitoring systems, risks)
  • Storage capacity
  • Other forms of sequestration (NL greenhouses, turquoise hydrogen)

A brief history of CCS

  • How CCS emerged, when, trailblazers?
  • Early pilot projects (Callide (AUS), Ciuden (ES), Schwarze Pumpe (D)
  • Ramp up
  • Impact of fluctuating CO2 pricing (crisis after 2011 and – recently – European rebound)
  • Successful projects during the crisis (Boundary Dam, Petra Nova)

CCS technologies

  • Overview of current technologies applied (how to remove the CO2 from process streams, solvents, amines)
  • Evaluation of technologies: techno-commercial (including licensors)
  •  Modeling of subsurface aspects of CO2
  • Cost structure, learning curves: challenges and opportunities
  • Operations and maintenance. For example: store monitoring systems.
  • Future technology outlook: opportunities and challenges (include start-ups by TRL status)

CCS business models

  • How CCS makes money (or not)? Subject to technology applied. CO2 pricing, negative emissions
  • CCS clusters: Liverpool Bay, Net Zero Teesside, Net Minus Humber, Ravenna Hub (Italy), Northern Lights (Norway, final investment decision taken), Acorn (UK), US (GoM, onshore) and Canada examples, Gorgon (AUS), Deep Purple (Nordic), Tomakomai (Hokkaido, Japan)
  • Other supply chain requirements to make CCS happen
  • Strategic partnerships focusing on CCS: overview, vision / objectives of each
  • Thermal hydrogen

CCS projects – overview and discussion, deep dives into case studies

  • Description/discussion of plants currently in operation
  • Operations and maintenance, employment opportunities
  • Plants and schemes under development/planning process (consenting, implementation, construction)
  • Lessons learnt from plants/projects with x years of operation
  • Project pipeline/future outlook

Policy and regulatory perspectives – global initiatives and national nuances

  • the IPPC perspective
  • United Nations perspective
  • EU CCS directive
  • National nuances: Canada, UK, US, Australia, Saudi Arabia (?), UAE (?), China, Japan, Korea
