Doubts cast on benefits of Geoengineering

Solar Radiation Management (SRM) in scientific circles can be a contentious topic. One general conclusion often made is that SRM is not a replacement for greenhouse gas mitigation. A new research paper, published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature[1], has cast doubt on the benefit of SRM. The researchers studied the impact of sulphur aerosol relea...

Previous Trends in Global GHG Emissions Reversed in 2017

BP's 67th Annual Statistical Review, which came out in June 2018, reports that in 2017 energy markets took a step backwards which is not good news. For the first time in three years, CO2 emissions rose again and global carbon emissions from energy consumption increased by 1.6%. Global primary energy consumption grew at 2.2% in 2017, the fastes...

New IEAGHG Technical Report: 2018-06 Re-Use of Oil & Gas Facilities for CO2 Transport And Storage

One perceived advantage for the use O&G fields for first generation CO2 storage is the potential reduction in costs for CO2 transport and storage by re-using existing O&G facilities, especially offshore. This report aims to review the potential re-use of the related infrastructure and assess the suitability of certain infrastructure for re-...

2017-TR11 IEAGHG 2017 Peer Review of US RCSP Phase III Projects

The Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships Program (RCSP) in the USA has been engaged in its third phase of operation since 2008. This phase has involved large scale (0.25 to 1 Mt/y) injection of CO2into six geological formations across North America since 2013. The DOE, through the National Energy Technologies Laboratory (NETL), manages the RC...
