In an effort to speed up the industry’s response to climate change, the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) has launched The CCUS Hub platform.
The web-based platform helps recognize carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) hubs around the world.
It includes a CCUS Hub Search, which is an interactive map that can currently pinpoint 279 potential CCUS hubs in 56 countries.
This matches carbon dioxide clusters with potential storage locations, along with estimates of the storage cost per ton of CO2.
The platform also features a downloadable CCUS Hub Playbook that contains practical lessons from the people behind some of the world’s most advanced CCUS hubs.
A ‘Hubs in Action’ section is there to provide an overview of the six emerging CCUS hubs that made up the CEO-led initiative’s initial Kickstarter campaign.
Thes hubs are Porthos, Northern Lights/Longship, Net Zero Teesside, China Northwest, Louisiana, and Ravenna CCS.
Key partners that form an advisory board include Global CCS Institute, Clean Energy Ministerial-CCUS, BCG, and the International Energy Agency’s Greenhouse Gas (IEAGHG) program, who will be overseeing The CCUS Hub.
The platform aims to provide a space, where all those involved in creating, operating and organizing CCUS hubs can come together to learn and exchange ideas.
