overview

With the Morrison Government’s recent announcement of an additional $539.2m for hydrogen and CCS in May’s budget, carbon capture is now a key part of Australia’s transition towards clean energy and carbon neutrality. One of the priority technologies in Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap, CCUS technology has been identified by the International Energy Agency (IEA) as the only large-scale mitigation option available that can deliver the additional CO2 emissions reductions that would be necessary to meet the climate goals in 2050.

Join us this August as industry leaders explore the developing CCUS story. This premier event will feature leading edge case studies on the latest development of CCUS technologies including Direct Air Capture (DAC) both in Australia and around the world whilst providing the ultimate platform to connect & network within the industry face-to-face.

POLICY & INVESTMENT

9:10 am

Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap is a strategy to accelerate development and commercialisation of low emissions technologies. This session will explore one of the priority technologies in Australia’s Technology Investment Roadmap, CCS technology and how it can deliver the additional CO2 emissions reductions that would be necessary to meet the climate goals in 2050.

9:35 am

Investing in CCS in Australia

Mark McCallum, Chief Executive Officer, Low Emission Technology Australia

10:00 am

PANEL | Investor sentiment on carbon-intensive projects and carbon-reduction strategies

Saul Kavonic, Head of Energy Research Australia, Credit Suisse

Further panelists to be advised,

10:45 am

Networking and refreshment break

CCUS INITIATIVES

11:15 am

MCA’s Climate Action Plan and the importance of CCUS technology development

Daniel Zavattiero, General Manager – Climate and Energy, Minerals Council of Australia (MCA)

11:40 am

Norther Territory’s offshore CCUS potential in the Petrel Basin

Alister Trier, Chairman - Gas Taskforce, Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet, Northern Territory Government

12:05 pm

Glencore’s CTSCo Project aims to demonstrate CCUS on an industrial scale in Queensland. It is Australia’s most advanced onshore CCUS project and is focused on:

  • Capturing CO2 from a coal-fired power station
  • Permanently storing the CO2 deep underground in the southern Surat Basin, about 230 kilometres West of Toowoomba

This project will bring valuable insight into the development of CCS in an industrially scalable, safe and cost-effective manner for all large-scale emitters of CO2.

12:30 pm

BPH’s proposed carbon storage component for the planned Baleen gas drilling program in the offshore Sydney Basin

Professor Peter Cook, Advisor on CCS, BPH

12:55 pm

Lunch and networking break

1:55 pm

The CarbonNet Project

Steven Marshall, Operations Director – CarbonNet, Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions

2:20 pm

The Latrobe Valley Energy Supply Chain Project and the role that CCS will play

Jeremy Stone, Non Executive Director & Advisor, J-Power Latrobe Valley

2:45 pm

The Moonie CCUS Initiation Project could be the first truly CCUS project in Australia. The project will utilize 7 existing wells at Moonie (1 injector and 6 producers, with effective monitoring of the EOR operation from other existing wells. Initially, minimal CO2 is forecast to return to the surface with the produced oil. As the operation matures, sufficient CO2 will be separated from the produced fluids to warrant recycling it to the reservoir as part of the EOR operation. Recycling will involve compression and dehydration facilities to process the separated CO2 for its re-injection and ultimate sequestration. Moonie is well situated to be the centre of a Surat Basin CO2 Storage Hub, which can gather and sequester CO2 from several thermal coal fired power plants and materially reduce Australia’s emissions.

3:10 pm

Networking and refreshment break
