Update on Esso Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) projects in Gippsland to help reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions
The Committee for Gippsland's Gippsland Hydrogen Cluster hosted a presentation from Esso Australia in Sale last week, updating members on Esso's Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) projects.
Esso's Select Stage Manager Simon Kemp offered key insights into regional CCUS projects. Simon, who is responsible for overseeing Phase 1 of the recently announced South Eastern Australia Carbon Capture Hub, said capturing carbon in an offshore depleted oil field could be operational as early as 2025.
Esso Australia's Bream Platform off the Gippsland Coast located approximately 46 km - 51 km off the Gippsland coast in approximately 61 m of water depth
Decarbonising and reducing emissions
The hub will initially use existing infrastructure to store CO2 in the depleted Bream field off the Gippsland coast. Simon explained how the technology could help industries decarbonise and reduce their emissions by injecting C02 into deep underground geologic formations for safe, secure and permanent storage.
The project is designed to capture up to two million metric tons of CO2 per year, which is equivalent to taking almost half a million cars off the road for every year of operation. For more information, visit the South East Australia Carbon Capture Hub website.
