In June 2011, the Australian Government announced the creation of a National CO2 Infrastructure Plan (NCIP).  The Plan was developed to accelerate the identification and development of sites suitable for the long term storage of CO2 in Australia that are within reasonable distances of major energy and industrial CO2 emission sources.  It will complement the work undertaken as part of the CCS Flagship program.  The NCIP builds on work under the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative and is scheduled to end in July 2015.
