Assessing potential for CCUS at oil refineries within clusters

  • Transport, utilisation and storage options
  • Cost and operational efficiencies
  • CO2 capture levels
  • CO2 capture unit design

The overarching objective is to undertake a real-world assessment of the potential for CCUS at oil refineries, which are part of large CCUS clusters, such as the one proposed for Cork. It will assess how much carbon it is feasible to capture from an economic point of view, the plot size and associated utilities needed, and the efficiencies achievable from a cluster approach. It will also consider transport, utilisation and storage, including the storage options at the identified CCUS clusters.
