The South West Hub carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Western Australian is Australia’s first CCS Flagship project. The project is currently underway in Western Australia’s south-west to examine the geological potential in the area for carbon capture and storage.
The pre-competitive phase of the project is led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (WA DMP) in partnership with industry.
Geological scientists have identified an area in the Harvey and Waroona shires as having excellent prospects as an injection site for the underground storage of CO2 in the Lesueur Sandstone formation.
NGL is the lead research partner for the project providing expertise and equipment to assess the viability of the area for storing CO2.
NGL has contributed to research for the South West Hub project through:
