CDR/CCUS: Project delivery experiences

9:30 am - 10:00 am (CST) @ Carbon Hub

A major ramp up in the delivery of mega-scale Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) projects is required to meet climate goals. Challenges to delivery of these new, large projects on time and on budget include their scale and complexity; the need to tailor project designs in many cases and permitting and regulatory requirements in various countries. On the other hand, the energy industry is used to delivering large-scale industrial projects, and it also has a track record of delivering CCUS projects. What learnings can be taken from past and ongoing projects which will help streamline future project delivery? How can the industry share best practices and knowledge to help accelerate new projects across the world
