Peterhead CCS project hosts public meetings

Peterhead-Power-Station

Shell and Scottish Southern Energy (SSE) are partners in the project to retrofit the Peterhead gas power plant with CO2capture and transport the gas to Shell’s Goldeneye gas field in the North Sea.

An announcement of whether the Peterhead project will receive co-funding from the UK government has been expected to be made in early 2014. It is as of yet amongst the preferred candidates for a share of 1.21 billion euro.  Initial funding of at least £20 million would be needed for Front End Engineering Design (FEED) studies to analyse and de-risk the costs of installing and running the selected capture technology at the site.

For a complete list of the meeting dates and venues see the BBC article on the topic.
