Project Description: 

This is a large-scale project that will implement a large-scale "Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Hub" for multiuser capture, transport, utilization, and storage of CO2 in southwestern Australia near the city of Perth. Several industrial and utility point sources of CO2 will be connected via a pipeline to a site for safe geologic storage deep underground in the Triassic Lesueur Sandstone Formation. The project initially plans to sequester 2.4 million tonnes of CO2 per year and has the potential for capturing approximately 6.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. 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.
