Roundtable on Co-operation in Carbon Capture and Storage: Demonstration and Commercialisation of Technologies


Moscow: 29 March 2011

Organiser: IEA

Background

On March 29 2011, the IEA jointly with the Russian Skochinsky Institute organized a Roundtable on Carbone Capture and Storage technologies in Moscow, Russia. The roundtable was supported by the Russian Ministry of Energy, The Russian Academy of Geology, and the Siberian Coal Energy Company (OAO SUEK).

The meeting brought together around forty Russian participants representing government, academia, research institutes, private sector oil, gas, coal, energy companies. Several international stakeholders, including representatives from the EC, UK government and Global CCS Institute also participated in the meeting.

The meeting was organized around 5 key themes: (1) Role of CCS in the energy sector development; (2) Technical issues of carbon capture, transportation and storage; (3) Policy, regulation and incentives to make CCS work; (4) Early opportunities for CCS in the Russian coal sector; and (5) The role of international cooperation in facilitating CCS development and deployment. Each session (organized around each theme) included presentations by Russian and foreign experts and a discussion with the roundtable participants.

The Roundtable was supported by:
Department of Coal and Peat Industry - Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation
Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK)
Academy of Mining Sciences
