Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced the award of a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study for the Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project on a natural gas power plant in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

This news comes just two months after the FEED study contract for the White Rose commercial-scale CCS electricity project at Drax power station in North Yorkshire was announced.

Welcoming this announcement, Professor Jon Gibbins, Director of the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) said, “CCS is imperative for the UK to reach our emission reduction targets and these FEED study projects will capitalise on the growing research knowledge base in the UK. The UKCCSRC welcomes this news and looks forward to working with these projects both on technical issues and in supplying the highly-skilled scientists and engineers needed to take forward CCS commercialisation.”
