Definition:CCS” stands for Capture Compression and Sequestration. This operation is directly related to the Carbone Dioxide (CO²).

Comments: As reflected by the acronym, CCS require three different operations:

  1. Capture: The Capture of the CO² is not always easy, it depends very much where the CO² comes from, mixed with Oil & Gas, produced out of a transformation process (gas turbines, chemical, etc…).
    Closer from the source is the Capture, easier it is.
  2. Compression: To extract or transport the CO², it requires large compressors for which leaks are not an option.
    Their operations must be well adjusted to the process from where the CO² is produced
  3. Sequestration: This operation needs long time ahead preparation to identify empty reservoirs, normally over aged oil & gas fields, or geologic pockets which could be proof enough to contain for decades this CO², so that this storage cannot cause environmental damages.

All these three operations supposes to mobilize advanced technologies and experience as illustrated by the picture above from Total installation in Lacq, France.

  1. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or blog posts in this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i am glad to convey that I’ve a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed. I such a lot indubitably will make certain to do not forget this website and provides it a look regularly.
