Reservoir Simulation – Carbon capture and storage project

North Sea

Project Completed

CO2 carbon capture and storage, North Sea

OPC provided support in reservoir simulation and modelling for long term carbon injection and storage project.

The White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage project would have been the first coal-fired power plant to demonstrate the use of oxy-fuel technology for low-carbon electricity at a competitive cost. The proposed 426 MW plant was expected to send 2 Mt CO2/year to an offshore saline aquifer, achieving 90% capture. The Development Consent Order application submitted to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, now Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, was rejected in April 2016. The rejection was on the basis that the project had no route to funding, following the UK government cancelling a CCS Competition in November 2015.
