Logistics Study

About the CO2 Logistic Study

Once captured the carbon dioxide need to be handled - it could either be utilized in bio-fuel production, stored permanently or a combination of both. All options calls for investigation of temporarily storage and transportation solutions which we at Captimise have been working with for several years in a multitude of feasibility studies.

Our logistic study identifies the optimal solution regarding liquefaction and buffer storage and we compare transportation alternatives including shipping routes and contracting, starting from the local conditions at a plant.

We are in constant dialogue with the storage sites in Europe and provide up to date information regarding shipping. We help our customers identify the most cost-efficient solution for their carbon dioxide value chain from capture to final storage.

Our Logistic Study includes the following deliverables (as a standard), and additional objectives can be included to customize the study to meet our customers own needs:
This could be a sensitivity analysis, pooling options with other emitters in part, or specific constraints at site or in port etc.

Step 1

Site Specification

The site specification defines available area and layout restrictions for the emitting plant site. The site specification includes annual profile of operational characteristics, design requirements and carbon dioxide quality specifications for transportation and permanent storage.

Step 2

Buffer storage and loading terminal(s)

Establishment of buffer storage area including liquefaction, and equipment for applicable loading terminal area. Comparison of transportation alternatives to harbour (when applicable) to find the most optimal solution which meets the site-specific conditions.

Step 3

Landbased logistics and onshore storage options.

Comparison of possible options regarding transport from site on land, either to an onshore storage, a biofuel plant or to a suitable port. This includes transportation routes, reliquefication to handle boil off, and in some cases specific environmental permits.

Step 4

Shipping and offshore storage options.

Comparison of available options regarding shipping and storage including harbour capacity, transportation routes, ship design, contracts and ownerships for shipping and available offshore storage sites.

Cost estimates

Cost estimates of shipping and storage for each available option are delivered according to ACCE class 4-5 in level of detail. The logistic study results are presented in cost per ton of captured CO2 include estimates for liquefaction, buffer storage, loading terminal equipment, complete transportation solution(s), and final storage. The cost estimates together with weighted KPIs help our customers to benchmark different logistic solutions against each other.

Logistic Report

We summarize the pros and cons related to each logistic concept based on your specifications. Calculations of CAPEX, OPEX are visualized in the report for each option and their associated logistic estimates (timing, volumes, footprints etc).
