White Tiger CCS project

Brief description:


Country: Vietnam

Scale: Large

Status: Identified

Industry: Coal Power Plant

New or retrofit: Retrofit
Transport of CO2 by: none

Storage site:

White Tiger Oil Field

Type of storage: Not decided

Volume: 4 600 000 tonnes/CO2


The planned White Tiger CCS project was the first CDM proposal based on CCS (registered Sept. 2005) and also the first commercial CCS project in Asia. The project includes capture of CO2 from a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) plant and injecting into the White Tiger oil field in Vietnam. This is a join project between Mitsubishi Heavy Industry and Marubeni with Vietsovpetro as local partner.

The annual capture is up to 4.6 million ton CO2/year and injection is planned across 144 km pipeline into an oil well at 4000m depth into the active oil/gas reservoir.

The project start is planned for 2010. If so, further expansion may be 7.4 million to CO2/year from 2014 to 2016. It should be noted that the proposed methodology is not yet approved by UNFCCC as eligible CDM.
