ECOBASE CO2 opslag

  • looptijd: 2017 - 2020
  • locatie: Stavanger,
  • functie: CO2

ECOBASE richt zich op CO2-opslag in combinatie met olieproductie in Zuidoost-Europa.

Key questions

  • How can CO2 -EOR support development of CCS in Romania, Turkey, Greece?
  • What are relevant volumes of CO2 for CCU?


Ecobase Impact

  • Support development of CCS, by:
    • Setting up and updating roadmaps
    • copying current NW European CCS plans / roadmaps and utilizing CCU benefits
    • Organizing workshops
    • Summer schools to transfer NW Europe knowledge and experience


Budget: M€ 1.6

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS)

De subsidieregeling CCUS stimuleert innovaties die:

  • barrières wegnemen bij CCUS-projecten; technische, economische én maatschappelijke barrières
  • kosten verlagen, de energie-efficiency verhogen én de veiligheid vergroten van afvang, transport en opslag van CO2
  • hergebruik van CO2 bevorderen

Afvang, transport en opslag van CO2 is voor Nederland kansrijk:

  • door de structuur van de Nederlandse energie- en industriesectoren.
  • de (mogelijke) toekomstige beschikbaarheid van infrastructuur en opslagmogelijkheden voor CO2.

De Nederlandse kennispositie op dit terrein.

  • Potentiële oplossingen worden benaderd vanuit technologisch, economisch, maatschappelijk en/of juridisch perspectief.

ECOBASE CO2 opslag

CO2 storage is essential for reaching the below 2C target. Commercial utilization of CO2 is one of mechanisms to create a business case for the CO2 storage and CO2-EOR is currently the only process capable of continuously utilizing and later storing large CO2 volumes. ECO-BASE will develop revenue streams and business models for CO2-EOR in South-Eastern Europe (SEE) therefore supporting large scale CCUS deployment. The project is carried out locally in SEE countries: Turkey, Romania and Greece with support from TNO, the Netherlands and IRIS, Norway. The project team will access the whole revenue stream and focus on optimization of the CO2-EOR combined with permanent storage (EORStore) as an undividable process. Four key activities represented by sub-projects are:

  1. Map CCUS potential in SEE and establish regional EORStore roadmaps. The sub-project will identify most promising case studies as input for sub-project 2.
  2. Creating a business case for selected EORStore case studies. The objectives are to model and optimize EORStore, access technical, legal and regulatory incentives and bottle necks. Sub-project will deliver site specific reports for further actions and identify more generalized lessons learned.
  3. Knowledge sharing and transfer between North West Europe (NWE) and SEE and beyond to boost and support CCUS activities in participating countries. Sub-project will organize courses for young specialists; arrange knowledge transfer to various stakeholders of CCUS community. An attempt to involve other countries of the Black Sea region (Bulgaria, Ukraine, Georgia, Russia) would be made.
  4. Public awareness and acceptance. Creating favorable atmosphere for CCUS development among all stakeholders is crucial-there were projects stopped or cancelled due to “total lack of local support”. The ECO-BASE is aiming at liaising with existing organisations (like CO2-GeoNet) and projects (like ENOS) in order to organise public events and raise awareness and acceptance of EORStore.
