The collaboration will include an assessment of CCS pipeline transport routes from key emission sources in Gladstone, Port Bonython and Greater Sydney to the Moomba CCS facility in the Cooper Basin.

Santos Energy Solutions executive vice president Alan Stuart-Grant says: ‘I am very excited about the growth potential for carbon storage services at Moomba…The world simply cannot achieve net zero by 2050 without a large scale-up of CCS and Santos has the expertise and infrastructure to be able to deliver low-cost, large-scale CCS and decarbonisation technologies…We are determined to deliver reliable, affordable, lower-carbon energy to our customers.’
