CCUS gains momentum despite midstream challenges

Major investment needed to expand CCUS infrastructure in US beyond existing use for enhanced oil recovery

Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technology has again become popular in discussions on how to combat climate change, but the associated midstream infrastructure necessary to support an energy transition remains underdeveloped and often overlooked. Midstream refers to the stages of transportation and storage that connect the upstream extraction and downstream distribution of oil and gas. Most often, the midstream relies on a system of pipelines. In addition to CO₂, pipelines also play a vital role in transporting other gases and liquids important for the energy transition, from hydrogen to renewable gas. CCUS technologies have been around for decades but have waxed and waned i
