Carbon capture, storage and use

The Carbon Capture Storage and Use theme assesses the technical and strategic issues surrounding carbon management for the gas E&P and LNG businesses. Effective management of carbon liabilities is vital, and requires the development of efficient and cost effective separation, handling and storage technologies. New uses of CO2 in sequestration processes are also being investigated.

Optimal carbon management also requires assessment of monitoring and verification techniques, improved understanding of product life cycle emissions, provision of evidence to inform strategic decisions on the development of CO2 infrastructure and translation of technical knowledge in response to rapidly evolving climate change mitigation policies.
