The Global CCS Institute will host its second annual CCS/CCUS Forum in Washington D.C. on 4-5 February, 2013. Details have been released to Institute Members.

Shenhua Ningxia Coal-to-liquids (CTL) is in the early stages of development for a CCS scheme and the proponent is considering various CO2 storage options, including the use of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery. Carbon dioxide of approximately 2 Mtpa could be captured from a large CTL plant in Ningxia Province, China. The project would be anticipated to have a start-up date in the 2020s. 

This demonstration facility examined the effectiveness of CO2 injection for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in low permeability reservoirs in the Jilin oil field in northeast China from 2008 to 2017. Carbon dioxide R&D injection tests began in 2006 and the scope of CO2-EOR activities enhanced since, reaching an injection capacity in the range of 300,000 – 350,000 tonnes per annum of CO2. Cumulative CO2 injection of 1.12 million tonnes was reached in 2017.

Sinopec Qilu Petrochemical CCS plans to retrofit a CO2 capture system to an existing coal/coke water slurry gasification unit at a fertiliser plant in Zibo City, Shangdong Province, China. The initial phase of the facility is in construction with a capture unit capable of close to 0.4 Mpta CO2 to be operational in 2019. The CO2 stream would be transported by pipeline to the Shengli oilfield for enhanced oil recovery.

Shanxi International Energy Group CCUS is in the early stage of development and the proponents are investigating potential transportation routes and storage sites. The development would involve the construction of a new super-critical, coal-fired power plant with oxy-fuel combustion technology in Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, China. The facilities could capture around 2 Mtpa of COwith an anticipated start-up timeline in the 2020s.

Australia's second National CCS Week and National CCS Conference will be held inthe week beginning 22 October, 2012.

Caledonia Clean Energy is examining construction of a new natural gas feedstock power plant (The Caledonia Plant) with integrated CO2 capture facilities located in the vicinity of Grangemouth, Central Scotland. Carbon dioxide capture capacity would be around 3 Mtpa. The CO2 would be transported via a network of existing re-purposed pipeline infrastructure for dedicated geological storage below a depleted gas field in the North Sea off Scotland. Start-up would be in the 2020's.

Monday, 4 June 2012 - 10:00am

Internationally renowned experts and scholars, government officials, and domestic and foreign entrepreneurs will be invited. They will discuss and share progress on advanced technologies for coal utilisation, focus on problems associated with current industrial development processes,increase the comprehensive utilisation of resources and promote the development of the value-add coal industries in China and US.

Wednesday, 16 May 2012 - 10:00am

Developers of large scale COinjection tests, developers of CCS demonstration projects and governments in Canada, Europe and the U.S. have shown a keen interest in a knowledge sharing workshop focused solely on MVA/MMV.

Sunday, 12 August 2012 - 10:00am

Selected students will be able to participate in this week long International Summer School with presentations and discussion led by international experts in the field of CCS. The programme covers the full chain of CCS; providing up-to-date information in each field; including technical information on capture technologies, storage site selection, capacity and modelling, wellbore integrity and transport; as well as other issues such as regulations, health and safety, and public communication.
