OIL AND GAS CLIMATE INITIATIVE
Teesside Cluster Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage Project
The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) will be consulting the local community on its proposals for the Teesside Cluster Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage Project (the 'CCUS Project') during October and November 2019. This represents our first stage (Stage 1) consultation on the CCUS Project.
The OGCI is a voluntary initiative comprising 13 member organisations from the oil and gas sector taking practical actions to combat climate change. One of the OGCI's key investments is the CCUS Project.
The CCUS Project would be the UK's first commercial scale, full chain carbon capture, usage and storage project and could involve land at and within the vicinity of the South Tees Development Corporation and Wilton International sites as well as within Stockton-on-Tees. The CCUS Project would have the potential to capture carbon dioxide emissions from a wide range of power and industrial sources on Teesside. The captured carbon dioxide could then be used in industry or transported by a pipeline offshore for storage in a suitable geological structure, such as a depleted oil or gas field, within the North Sea.
The UK Government has recently committed to achieve 'net zero' in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, by 2050. This is a more ambitious commitment than the Government's previous target to achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80% compared to 1990 levels by 2050. The CCUS Project would play an important role in achieving 'net zero' by helping to decarbonise Teesside's power and industrial sectors.
We will be holding several public consultation events at which we will provide more information on our proposals and where members of the project team will be available to answer questions. Details of the events are provided below.
