As one of Europe’s leading events dedicated to the coal-based power industry, COAL-GEN Europe 2012 will present an informative conference and comprehensive exhibition showcasing the latest technologies such as gasification, oxy fuel and carbon capture and storage (CCS) to reduce CO2 emissions and meet Europe’s 20:20:20 target. The event will also highlight the need for continued investment and opportunities for enhancing the performance of coal plants to meet the world’s pressing energy needs.
The 8th Annual Clean Coal Forum will serve as the information and networking platform for commercialising clean coal technologies in China and the world. It will address the most crucial issues that will determine performance objectives in China and in the world. This conference will generate some valuable advices to assist you to gauge the pulse of this ever-changing industry and grasping the latest and most advanced clean coal technologies.
China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec) plans to build a post-combustion capture system to a newly built thermal power production unit as part of Phase III of the Shengli Power Plant development in Dongying City, Shandong Province, China. The CO2 capture facilities, with a capacity of 1 Mtpa, are expected to begin operation in the 2020s. The captured CO2 would be transported by pipeline to the Shengli oilfield for enhanced oil recovery.
The ACTL plans to transport CO2 from a number of sources in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, near Redwater, to declining oil fields in Central Alberta for the purpose of enhanced oil recovery. The initial sources of CO2 for the ACTL include the existing Agrium fertiliser plant which will have a CO2 recovery facility retrofitted by Enhance Energy (and able to capture 0.3 - 0.6 Mtpa CO2 for transport via ACTL). The ACTL is expected to be operational in the latter part of 2018.
The ACTL plans to transport CO2 from a number of sources in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, near Redwater, to declining oil fields in Central Alberta for the purpose of enhanced oil recovery. The initial sources of CO2 for the ACTL includes the new build North West Redwater (NWR) Partnership's Sturgeon Refinery, which will include a new CO2 compression and cooling facility owned by Enhance Energy (and able to capture 1.2 -1.4 Mtpa CO2 for transport via ACTL). The ACTL is expected to be operational in the latter part of 2018.
The Platts European ‘Carbon Capture and Storage' conference has grown together with the industry and provided attendees with an overview of European CCS and its development including the latest in policy developments, deployment challenges like finance, public awareness and storage liability, and showcased the leading projects in their various stages from Europe and from around the world. The Global CCS Institute is a supporting partner of this conference, if you are an Institute Member you are entitled to 15 per cent off the registration fee.
The Century Plant natural gas treatment facility in Texas, when fully operational, has a CO2 capture capacity of around 8.4 Mtpa. Captured CO2 is transported via a pipeline system to oil fields for enhanced oil recovery.
The Terrell gas processing facility is one of the 'original' Val Verde natural gas processing plants in west Texas, that began capturing CO2 as part of gas processing since the early 1970s. Captured CO2 is transported via the Val Verde pipeline to McCamey, Texas, where it connects with the Canyon Reef Carriers (CRC) pipeline and the Pecos pipeline. The CO2 is then distributed to mature oil fields for enhanced oil recovery. The Terrell facility has a CO2 capture capacity of around 0.4-0.5 Mtpa.
The Shute Creek gas treating facility, located in Wyoming, began operation in 1986. After a plant expansion was completed in 2010, annual CO2 capture capacity is now at around 7 Mtpa. The captured CO2 is distributed via pipeline systems to a number of depleted oil fields in Wyoming and Colorado for use in enhanced oil recovery.
