Project Description: 

This is a large-scale project that will implement a large-scale multi-user carbon dioxide (CO2) capture, transport, and storage network in southeastern Australia in the Latrobe Valley. Multiple industrial and utility point sources of CO2 will be connected via a pipeline to a site where the CO2 can be stored in saline aquifers in the Gippsland Basin. The project initially plans to sequester approximately 1 to 5 million tonnes of CO2 per year, with the potential to increase capacity significantly over time. The project will also include reservoir characterization and, once storage is underway, measurement, monitoring, and verification technologies.

Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Perth meeting in October 2012.
