  • How to Make CCS Happen

    Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM ET
    Join us as Distinguished Lecturer Ian Phillips gives a follow-up lecture on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).   Abstract : The CCS value chain is long and complex – many different parts need to work together to enable us to capture CO2 and sequester it deep underground so we start to do something about the emissions that are causing climate change. This presentation will discuss each step in the CCS value chain – discussing the technologies that are available now, that are maturing into the market, and that are being developed as researchers round the world focus their attention on the challenge.  The presentation will also consider the commercial challenges to making CCS a reality at scale. Finally, we will discuss the scale of the challenge that we expect CCS to address. Presenter Biography : Ian Phillips has over 30 years of experience in the upstream oil and gas industry with operators and service companies. In 2007 he became a founding Director of CO2DeepStore Limited - now Pale Blue Dot Energy Limited - the first company specifically seeking to deliver CCS as a service. He holds an M.Sc. in Petroleum Engineering from Heriot Watt University and an MBA.
