CCS Challenging for Browse

Incorporating carbon capture and storage (CCS) to the stalled US$20.5 billion Browse project offshore Western Australia is proving to be a challenging task, according to Woodside Energy's final environmental report for the proposed Browse to North West Shelf (NWS) project. Woodside CEO Meg O'Neill has said several times in recent months that the 8%-12% CO2 contained in the Browse fields needed to be managed for the project to move forward. “Geo-sequestration was assessed as presently being a high-risk, high-cost mitigation option for Browse reservoir CO2 [carbon dioxide],” Woodside said in its environmental report, repeating almost word for word what it concluded back in 2019 in its draft environmental report. Woodside also said, “CCS for an offshore floating facility remains technically challenging,” adding that CCS technology will improve.
