ExxonMobil, RasGas capture CO2. CSLF notes scale of problem. CSC’s carbon managed service.

ExxonMobil has expanded its LaBarge, Wyoming, carbon capture facility which now has a 365 million cu. ft./day capacity – equivalent to taking 1.5 million cars off the road. CO2 is captured from natural gas production and made available for enhanced oil recovery and other industrial users.

Qatari RasGas has deployed emission reduction technology supplied by GE at its Ras Laffan LNG Complex. GE’s dry low NOx (DLN) combustion technology is being used to reduce gas turbine emissions. RasGas MD Hamad Rashid Al Mohannadi said, ‘This retrofit on six gas turbines has halved NOx emissions. We are now fitting of the rest of our gas turbines in compliance with the State environmental regulations.’ More from www.ge.com.

A report from the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) indicates ‘significant’ international progress on ‘advancing’ carbon capture and storage (CCS). However challenges remain, notably the ‘sheer scale’ of creating a CO2 transmission system in populated areas. There are 32 active or completed CCS projects and ‘significant’ investment in technology. More from www.cslforum.org.

Computer Science Corp. (CSC) has launched a ‘carbon managed service’ based on SAP’s ‘carbon impact on-demand’ solution. The service helps companies develop a ‘proactive and profitable’ carbon management process, capturing emissions and establishing an accurate and auditable carbon footprint. CSC also helps develop mitigation strategies. Carbon managed service is component of CSC’s compliance and sustainability portfolio delivered from CSC’s ‘trusted cloud’. More from www.csc.com.
