geological storage of CO2

Summary of Business

CCS (Carbon-dioxide Capture and Storage) is one of the key technologies to mitigate the global warming.
JCCS was commissioned to execute this CCS demonstration project for the first four years from 2012 to 2016 to establish CCS technology for the utilization from 2020.

In this period, two major facilities will be newly designed and constructed; CO2 capture facility, CO2 injection facility. These are located near by a petroleum refinery plant. CO2 is captured from offgas generated at a hydrogen production unit in the refinery plant. Two injection wells are to be drilled beside the injection facility.

Monitoring facilities covering the whole demonstration area will be installed during this period. These systems include three observation wells with down-hole seismometers and several seismometers on-land and at the seabed. Baseline data before injection will be gathered using installed systems for at least one year.

In Japan, CO2 geological storage below the seabed is regulated by the Act on Marine Pollution and Maritime Disaster. A marine environmental assessment prior to injection is necessary for an application to obtain a storage permit. In order to complete the assessment, a marine survey will be carried out during this period.
