Carbon Management Services
According to the International Energy Agency, more than 5,000 million tonnes of CO2 per year is required to be captured and sequestered by 2050 to achieve net-zero emission goals. There are a range of sources from where CO2 can be captured; fossil and bio-mass powered generation, industrial processes and direct capture from air being the primary sources. We have the technology and the potential through our Carbon management and logistic processes to transport and store CO2 in large quantities, reducing emissions across the value chain of energy products.
Captured CO2 can be transported through pipelines, water carriers or a combination of each. BE&R through its years of experience in marine and facilities consulting, provides logistics and storage related support for CO2. BE&R have in-depth experience in the development of concepts for import and export of gaseous and liquid products across various locations in the world and have assessed various options for collecting and redistributing CO2 to single and multiple locations.
BE&R is working diligently with our clients to provide the following services:
- High level consulting for infrastructure related to off and on-loading of CO2
- Transportation and logistics consulting for infrastructure required to transport the captured CO2 for utilisation or storage elsewhere where the geology of underground formations is suitable for storage.
- Offshore services consulting for different methods of importing and exporting CO2.
- Shipment of CO2 for safe transportation between facilities.
- Sizing of transportation systems and facilities both onshore and ocean-going vessel for inter-continental transportation
- Determination of import and export profile over the life of the project.
- Supporting shipyard and vendor management for CO2 tanks and vessel construction
- Scope, schedule, and cost estimation for the required infrastructure
- Loading, handling, storage and unloading support
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a critical emissions reduction technology that can be applied across the energy system. Currently, 40 million tonnes of CO2 is captured in various forms across power and industrial facilities around the world.
More than 30 new projects related to CCS have been announced since 2017. In Australia, the Gorgon project was the first to use this technology, aiming to capture 50% of the CO2 released during gas production. Even with the majority of CCS projects located in the USA and Europe we are seeing an increase in momentum for the technology in Asia-Pacific. It is estimated that 130MT of CO2 will be captured per year if all forcast CCS projects come online.
