Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Projections of the scale on which CCS needs to be deployed to meet targets for CO2
emissions reductions indicate that a massive CO2 pipeline infrastructure will be required.
To date CCS systems have tended to be based on dedicated pipelines connecting source
to sink although some studies of regional CO2 pipeline infrastructure requirements have
been carried out. The purpose of this study is to examine the wider issues including
design, financing, economics and regional differences.
