Course Credit: 0.1 CEU, 1 PDH

This presentation will cover several aspects of CO2 transport via pipeline. The presentation will start with a high-level comparison of natural gas transport vs. CO2 transport in pipelines, highlighting key similarities and differences that may impact the processing requirements upstream of the pipeline and the design of the pipeline itself. This comparison will serve to frame the remainder of the presentation which will focus on specific aspects of CO2 transport in pipelines. The first aspect of CO2 transport that will be covered is pre-conditioning of CO2 prior to transport, including a brief review of common impurities and processing options. This will be followed by a review of CO2 properties and phase behavior as they relate to transport of CO2 via pipelines. This review will include discussion of “typical” CO2 transport conditions, impacts of impurities on CO2 phase behavior, and any specific risks or challenges associated with transporting CO2 via pipeline. A general overview of pipeline design considerations (from process engineering perspective) will also be covered in the presentation. Specific examples, case studies, or operating scenarios may be reviewed to substantiate points in the preceding topic areas. Finally, the presentation will close with a discussion of the potential to re-use existing natural gas pipelines for CO2 transport.
