Epistemologies of uncertainty : governing CO2 capture and storage science and technology
(The University of Edinburgh, 2014-11-27)
This thesis progresses from a ‘science and technology studies’ (STS) perspective to consider the ways that expert stakeholders perceive and communicate uncertainties and risks attached to carbon ...
Enabling the Legal and Regulatory Framework for Large-scale Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage Projects in Guangdong, China: Draft Report Version 1 for Expert Comments in Jun 2014
(UK-China (Guangdong) CCUS Centre, 2014-06)
Even though a large number of pilot scale CCUS projects are operating in China (Zhang, 2013), there were very few comprehensive studies on CCUS regulatory frameworks to support the deployment of large-scale demonstration ...
CO₂ Offshore Storage in China: Research Review and Plan for Demonstration Project
(UK-China (Guangdong) CCUS Centre, 2015-05-18)
In order to find CO2 storage site for the first full-chain offshore CCUS project in Guangdong Province, we examined 16 producing oil fields in the Pearl River Mouth Basin offshore Guangdong. At first, we eliminated from ...

Central North Sea - CO2 Storage Hub Enabling CCS Deployment in the UK and Europe
(SCCS / Scottish Enterprise, 2012-08)
Carbon Capture & Storage is widely recognised as a vital technology which will play a significant role in the generation of low carbon electricity. CCS has the potential to reduce the carbon emissions of fossil fuelled ...
CO₂-EOR: Security of Storage
(Scottish Carbon Capture and Sporage, 2015-03-31)
Preliminary studies from CO2-EOR in Canada have suggested that, in CO2-EOR settings, solubility trapping takes place within both aqueous and hydrocarbon phases. As such it is postulated that CO2-EOR may provide a greater ...
Legal Status of CO₂ – Enhanced Oil Recovery
This report examines key issues concerning the application of current law to the injection of CO2 associated with enhanced oil recovery operations. Its focus is on the applicable law within the United Kingdom including ...
Carbon Capture and Storage in Scotland and the European Union
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is critical to decarbonising power sector and industrial emissions, and achieving climate mitigation targets. With world-leading decarbonisation targets, a large and mature hydrocarbon ...
