  • What makes the Gorgon project different. The carbon dioxide buried is neither used for recovering more oil nor is it buried to avoid a carbon price.

    What makes the Gorgon project different. The carbon dioxide buried is neither used for recovering more oil nor is it buried to avoid a carbon price. It’s being buried simply because the Australian government asked Chevron to do so. Once working at full scale, it will be the world’s largest CCS facility that simply buries the greenhouse gas in underground reservoirs.

  • Australia has long refused to pull its weight on carbon emissions. About time this thing went live

  • This sounds too good to be true. Can anyone tell me how this thing works?

  • One step for one company. A vital leap for mankind.

  • Greenpeace vocal rhetoric aside, there are actually many legitimate organizations that do proper research that believe that carbon capture and storage is not a viable solution to climate change.

    Greenpeace vocal rhetoric aside, there are actually many legitimate organizations that do proper research that believe that carbon capture and storage is not a viable solution to climate change. One of the issues research on alternatives that were proposed more than a decade ago, was that the overall life cycle and energy penalty related does not necessarily bode well for your zero-emission in the longer term. This is especially the case with precombustion solutions. Then the challenge of storage, pumping it into porous rocks, trapping it into geological structures and depleted oil fields hoping that the cap Rock keeps the liquid gas from escaping.

  • One step at a time for humanity

  • You know what they say about things that are too good to be true!

    Can anyone shed some light on this: How do CCS projects that are of this nature (where the process doesn’t somehow add value back to the primary operations itself) affect the cost of natural gas extracted?

    I understand, there must

    You know what they say about things that are too good to be true!

    Can anyone shed some light on this: How do CCS projects that are of this nature (where the process doesn’t somehow add value back to the primary operations itself) affect the cost of natural gas extracted?

    I understand, there must be some cross subsidisation of costs in the example of oil fields. How viable is something like this in emerging economies?

  • Sounds exactly like sweeping the dirt under your rug.
