Operational Flexibility of CO2 Transport and Storage
One of the advantages of CCS as a means of CO2 abatement is that several industrial processes, as well as fossil fuel power generation, can be captured and connected to a pipeline network.  Multiple sources of CO2 can then be transported to suitable geological reservoirs and injected to ensure secure storage.  Many industrial operations, and power generation, can generate intermittent and variable amounts of CO2 with some impurities.  These factors can affect pipeline transport and potentially storage conditions.  IEAGHG commissioned a study to investigate the extent to which intermittent supply and transport mjosirt influence storage and EOR
