The Ervia Cork CCS is in feasibility study for capturing CO2 from a number of emission-intensive companies located in Cork, with initial consideration being given to the two modern gas-fired, combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power stations and Ireland’s only oil refining business: Irving Oil Refinery. The captured CO2 is proposed to be transported via an existing pipeline network, to the potential CO2 storage sites in the Kinsale Gas Field.

The H21 North of England project aims to decarbonize power, heat and transport across the North of England. It aims to convert the UK gas grid from natural gas (methane) to zero-carbon hydrogen. The project could start in 2026 - 2028. By 2035, the project would have the potential to become the largest CCUS project in the world.

The Hydrogen to Magnum (H2M) will include a natural gas to hydrogen production plant with CO2 capture and export facilities. The produced hydrogen will be made use of to fuel the Magnum gas power plant in Eemshaven, Germany. Equinor, Vattenfall and Gassunie are assessing the feasibility of converting three units of the combined cycle gas turbine power plant to hydrogen powered units. 

The Phase II, Acorn Scalable CCS Development, is a full chain CCS facility that would use the existing CO2 capture and pipeline infrastructure. Acorn Scalable is a scale up of the pilot project Acorn (Minimum Viable CCS Development), which aims to operate CCS infrastructure at minimum capital cost for capture, transport and storage of CO2.

HyNet North West is an integrated low-carbon hydrogen production, distribution and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) project being developed by Cadent (lead) together with Progressive Energy. The CO2 is planed to be captured from the Hydrogen Production & Carbon Capture plant, and transported, together with captured CO2 from existing nearby industrial sites, to the decommissioning Hamilton and Lennox gas fields in Liverpool Bay owned and operated by ENI for dedicated geological storage. 

The Rotterdam CCUS Backbone Initiative (Porthos) is considering the best opportunities for creating a CO2  capture, transport and offshore storage infrastructure system (a ‘backbone’) for various industries in the Port of Rotterdam to use . The ambition is to store 2 million tonnes of CO₂ per year from 2021 on, a total that will run up to 5 million tonnes per year by 2030. 

This facility injects CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in low permeability reservoirs of the Jilin oil field in northeast China. The CO2 is captured from a nearby natural gas processing plant at the Changling gas field, and transported by pipeline. After 12 years of pilot and demonstration tests, the commercial operation, as Phase III, began in 2018, reaching 600,000 tonnes CO2 per annum. Cumulative CO2 injection of 1.12 million tonnes for pilot and demonstration scale operation was reached in the 2017.


“This year will be pivotal for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) in the UK. It is important that we maintain the momentum on CCUS.”

Lake Charles Methanol is a proposed gasification facility in Louisiana, planning to capture over 4 Mtpa of CO2 from synthetic gas (syngas). The syngas (to be further converted to make methanol and other products) would be produced during the conversion of petroleum coke sourced from oil refineries in the Gulf Coast region. The captured CO2 would most likely be used in Denbury Resources enhanced oil recovery assets in the Houston area, Texas. The Institute estimates an operations date of 2022.
