Masdar pushes ahead with CCS project

UAE clean energy company Masdar is developing a carbon capture project in association with the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Details of the project were given today at POWER-GEN Middle East in Abu Dhabi by Masdar Clean Energy’s associate director Yousif Al Ali.

He said that the project is located at a factory of Emirate Steel and commercial operations are expected to begin next year.

The carbon dioxide feed stream from the Emirates Steel plant, containing 90 per cent carbon dioxide, will be transferred to a common compression and dehydration facility at the project site in Mussafah. The feed stream will be compressed into dense phase, delivering an expected CO2 stream of over 98 per cent purity, through 50 km of the pipeline network to be injected in an onshore field, operated by Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations.

Ultimately, Masdar hopes to build a national network that captures carbon from the power generation and industry and utilizes carbon dioxide for enhanced oil recovery instead of reinjecting natural gas into oil fields to trigger oil flow.
