EI LIVE I Technical webinar: New CCUS Guidelines



14:00 - 15:00



EI LIVE I Technical webinar: CCUS guidelines

In 2010 and 2013, the Energy Institute published vital reference documents for the nascent Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) industry, focusing on good plant design and hazard analysis for CCUS installations and pipelines. Over a decade after their publication, recognising both increased interest in CO capture and storage and the work that has been undertaken in the meantime, the opportunity was taken to restructure the documents. The updated guidelines were published in April 2024.

The Good plant design and operation for onshore and offshore carbon capture installations and pipelines document provides guidance on the various elements of the CCUS chain (omitting geological storage) and gives assistance what is currently perceived as good practice in design and operation. The Hazard Analysis for onshore and offshore carbon capture installations and pipelines guide focuses on the hazards associated with CO, including approaches to ensuring that hazards for onshore and offshore carbon capture installations and pipelines are appropriately identified, quantified, and mitigated.

We encourage anyone to join the webinar who has an interest in the CCUS industry and learning more about the content of these comprehensive guidance documents.

Bios of speakers:

Andy Brown, Progressive Energy’s Engineering Director, has been promoting low carbon technologies including hydrogen, and capturing, transporting and storing carbon dioxide for the last 25 years. This has allowed him to grow in understanding as the technologies have evolved, and as project such as HyNet are developed. Over the past four years, Andy has used his knowledge and understanding to act as principal author of the Good plant design guidance document.

Prakash Patel, is a Chartered Chemical Engineer with more than 30 years of experience in various fields, including Industrial Gases  (including hydrogen, carbon dioxide and air gases), Plant Design, Process Safety Management and Hazard and Risk Quantification. Since 2019 he has been the Global Hydrogen and CCUS Risk Engineering Lead at Marsh. Prakash is a member of the Energy Institute’s Hydrogen and CCUS Committees and chairs the working group that revised the Good Plant Design and hazard Analysis guidance documents.
