CCS Wire

With the kind help of those nice folks at Blogactiv, I’ve added a new picture to the top of this page. (Previously there was just a standard image.) The image is of one of the CO2 injection wells connected to the In Salah natural gas plant in Algeria, a joint venture between BP, Statoil, and Sonatrach. I visited In Salah earlier this year, alongwith MEP Chris Davies, EP Rapportuer on CCS and others to see first-hand a CCS demonstration project in operation. Since 2004, In Salah has been storing around 1 million tonnes per year of CO2 via this and two other wells close by. I post the pic here as a reminder that CCS is not some pipe-dream (as some make out) but a real option available today. More on here.
