The document provides an update on some key policy developments since publication of the UK’s CCS Roadmap in 2012 and responds to the major recommendations from Task Force’s final report.
The document is focussed on the wider development of CCS, beyond the competition, and sets out a vision for CCS deployment which we would like to develop further with industry. We envisage there could be three phases of development in the UK with the Competition representing the first phase. We also set out further information on the actions we are taking to build the wider industry for example through EMR, through investigating the potential for enhanced oil recovery, or through ensuring the infrastructure that is laid down as part of the Competition brings the greatest benefit to the wider development of CCS.
The report also notes that we have asked Michael Gibbons OBE to represent industry as co-chair in a reinvigorated CCS Development Forum.
