There is much noise around renewable energy and cutting greenhouse emissions. At CCS Energy, our engineering experts uncover cost-effective carbon emissions solutions for Australian businesses and mitigate risk for hard-to-abate sectors such as cement and fertilizer production. Our engineers employ a comprehensive four-part strategy to assist businesses in transitioning to a net zero-carbon future.
Change is inevitable, and by getting ahead of the curve and leveraging our intensive industry experience and technical expertise, carbon emitters can sure up their futures and make long-term strategic plans that have the fundamentals of environmental protection and sustainable carbon emission targets built into their future planning schedule.
Is carbon capture and storage feasible for your business?
Before committing to a CCS project, our team conducts an in-depth feasibility study. We unearth the legal, economic and operational risks and opportunities directly affecting your business and the suitability of a carbon capture and storage solution.
We work across a broad range of industries, providing subsurface and well engineering technical support to transition new and existing operations into CCS assets.
Our assessments cover everything from greenfield projects to existing carbon-producing infrastructure without subsurface components and those with existing subsurface assets. We assess the feasibility of utilising carbon capture and storage in conjunction with other low emission technologies to assist you to decarbonise your business. We provide a detailed cost analysis and value proposition, including available government incentives and emerging engineering technologies to ensure we are maximising value.
What about compliance and risk analysis?
Geological engineering projects, including CCS, require many permits, regulatory approvals, risk analyses and licences. Our team has the experience and expertise to consult actively with the relevant regulatory bodies and stakeholders. We manage all project compliance and risk analysis aspects, protecting your business, the environment and the public. From licensing CO2 storage sites and associated facilities to drilling approvals and permit surrenders, CCS Energy engineering experts have in-depth knowledge of best practices for both CCS developments and geothermal energy.
Engineering design and execution
CCS Energy’s engineering team has significant experience within the oil and gas industry. Our specialist carbon capture engineers expertly manage the full cycle of design and execution. We coordinate and execute conceptual strategies and engineering analysis, including geological and petrophysical assessments. We identify potential locations for underground geological sequestration and review potentially suitable subsurface reservoirs in your operating region to assess possible CCS applications.
Our team provides detailed and fit-for-purpose well engineering designs, integrity assessments and reservoir characterisations to ensure the proposal of a safe, sustainable and cost-effective solution.
We offer turnkey designs and execution of the subsurface CCS asset – from CO2 to reservoir – ready for geological storage of CO2, including integration of the CO2 supply infrastructure. And we remain committed to our projects throughout their lifecycle, managing all aspects of monitoring and testing while in operation and planning for future decommissioning to ensure CO2 retainment.
CCS Energy project management
Moving from feasibility to execution requires experienced and qualified expertise. At CCS Energy, we manage the entire process, from procurement and contracting to compliance and risk analysis. It is critical to ensure the right professionals are engaged at the right time. Our position is to ensure cost-effective solutions and ongoing project management that create a financially stable project. We identify, complete and submit applications for government grants and incentives while actively engaging with appropriate government bodies to ensure ongoing compliance with all regulatory requirements and guidelines.
CCS Energy is committed to forging your path toward net zero emissions. Our expertise can help clients set realistic targets and tap into additional asset value through carbon offset mechanisms available through various global emission trading schemes. Our team members are CSS experts and well engineers, passionate about identifying efficient and cost-effective transition technology to capture and store carbon, and reduce your operation’s carbon footprint.
With years of technical experience in the petroleum industry, we can provide all aspects of technical design, project management and regulatory administration.
