ETI-CC1026: Strategic UK CCS Storage Appraisal
Start 29/05/2015 - End 14/12/2016 Value £2500000 PI Carbon Capture and Storage, Pale BLue Dot
Extract from press release – dated 09 October 2009:
The Energy Technologies Institute has launched an ambitious project which could see the UK as the first country with a comprehensive assessment of national CO2 storage capacity. The project costing in excess of £3.5 million, will carry out a review of potential sites suitable for storing CO2 offshore and help to answer the question of exactly how much storage capacity is practically available in the UK.
The UK is potentially well served with offshore CO2 storage capacity in depleted oil and gas reservoirs and saline formations and, although various estimates have been made of the total amount available, those figures vary widely. Obtaining a more accurate estimate of storage capacity will enable the Government, CO2 emitters, storage operators and infrastructure and technology developers to make more informed choices on the realistic extent and roll out...

ETI-CCS-1: UK CO2 Storage Appraisal
Start 01/10/2009 - End 30/09/2010 Value £3800000 PI Carbon Capture and Storage, Senergy
This desk-based survey of UK requirements for Measurement, Monitoring and Verification (MMV) of offshore CO2 storage sites was designed to provide a clear view of the developing legislation, state of the art of MMV technologies and field experience in UK offshore applications. The study reviewed UK legislative requirements, features of likely UK storage sites and potential MMV technologies. From this, MMV technology development requirements were identified to give an understanding of the main technology gaps and to establish where ETI resources should be focused to deliver future technology development. The Project provided valuable and focused information about the technology and developing regulatory environment and identified priorities for the development of MMV technologies to meet UK requirements.

ETI-CC1004: Measurement, Monitoring and Verification of CO2 Storage (MMV)
Start 11/04/2014 - End 14/03/2018 Value £5400000 PI Carbon Capture and Storage, Fugro GeoServices Ltd
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies are potentially important contributors to global efforts to reduce fossil fuel emissions of CO2. If successfully developed and deployed, they could allow the continued use of fossil fuels whilst achieving large reductions in emissions. Although under active development, there are significant uncertainties about the technical, economic and financial viability of CCS.
This project will conduct an independent, inter-disciplinary assessment of CCS viability from now to 2030, by a three-institution partnership from the Universities of Sussex, Edinburgh and Imperial College in close co-operation with research user organisations. Results will contribute to academic understanding, public policy making and business analysis of CCS. The project team includes expertise in CCS engineering and storage; in the analysis of low carbon innovation; and in energy economics and policy.

Start 01/04/2010 - End 31/03/2012 Value £133787 PI J (Jim) Watson, University of Sussex
This project provided ETI with an objective view of the techno-economic performance of a range of current and next generation CO2 capture technologies including pre and post combustion and oxyfuel CCS plant. The analysis that underpins these benchmarking studies was based on coal and gas fired power station designs typical of those found in the UK and considered parameters such as power station capital cost, efficiency and levelised cost of electricity (with and without CCS).

ETI-CC2001: Next Generation Capture Technology ? Benchmarking and Performance Analysis
Start 09/04/2009 - End 01/04/2010 Value £300000 PI Carbon Capture and Storage, ETI (Energy Technologies Institute)
Extract from press release – dated 24 May 2010:
The Energy Technologies Institute is to carry out a detailed study of the availability and distribution of suitable minerals across the UK and technologies that could be used to economically capture and store carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. These may arise from distributed sources such as small power plants and industrial facilities as well as large power stations. The leading technology for carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing carbon dioxide gas then storing it underground in oil and gas reservoirs and other porous areas. The ETI previously announced the UK Storage Appraisal Project, to improve the estimates of how much practical potential geologic storage space is available around the country, since there remains a risk that potential sites may turn out to be insufficient in volume, uneconomic or impractical.

ETI-CC1001: UK Storage Appraisal Project (UKSAP)
Start 23/09/2009 - End 28/09/2012 Value £400000 PI Carbon Capture and Storage, Senergy
This £200,000 nine-month long project, studied the impact of removing brine from undersea stores that could, in future, be used to store captured carbon dioxide. It was carried out by Heriot-Watt University, a founder member of the Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) research partnership, and Element Energy. T2 Petroleum Technology and Durham University also participated in the project. It built on earlier CCS research work and helped develop understanding of potential CO2 stores, such as depleted oil and gas reservoirs or saline aquifers, located beneath UK waters. It also helped to build confidence among future operators and investors for their operation. Reducing costs and minimising risks is crucial if CCS is to play a long-term role in decarbonising the UK’s future energy system.
