Topic of Presentation:

CCS Current Global Status

Career history:

John Gale spent 18 years with The British Coal Corporation working on clean coal technologies, prior to joining IMC Group Ltd as an environmental consultant. That work took him to China, India, South Africa, Bulgaria, Russia and Romania undertaking studies on improving the efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of coal use in both industry and the power sector.
He joined the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) in 1999 and managed the Programmes activities on Non-CO2 greenhouse gases, greenhouse gas abatement in energy intensive industries and geological storage of CO2 before becoming General Manager in 2008. As General Manager he is responsible to the IEAGHG Executive Committee for ensuring the programmes activities are delivered to time and budget. He represents IEAGHG on various IEA committees as required, such as the IEA Working Party on Fossil Fuels and coordinates IEAGHG’s input to IEA publications like World Energy Outlook and Energy Technology Perspectives. He also manages IEAGHG’s input to the GHGT and PCCC conferences series. He is currently Co-chair of the GHGT-13 Steering Committee and Chair of the PCC3 Steering committee.
He is also a Director of IEA EPL operating company that manages IEAGHG on behalf of the membership.

In addition to his work with IEAGHG:

  • He was one of the co-coordinating lead authors on the 2005 IPCC Special Report on CO2 Capture and storage for which he was acknowledged as a contributor to the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the IPCC in 2007.
  • He has been Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal on Greenhouse Gas Control since 2007.
    He is currently the Chair of the Independent Advisory Panel for the UKCCSRC
    He has authored over 80 technical papers on CCS in conference proceedings and peer reviewed journals.

Michael J. MoneaView and Download Presentation

Current position

President, Carbon Capture & Storage Initiatives, SaskPower

Country

Canada

Career history:

  • Michael J. Monea joined SaskPower in 2008 as Vice-president, Carbon Capture & Storage Initiatives for SaskPower and in September, 2011 he was appointed President, of this division.
    Prior to his role with SaskPower, Monea was a senior Vice-president with Canada Capital Energy Corporation. He served as Executive Director of the Petroleum Technology Research Centre at the University of Regina and later was appointed Chairman of the Board. In 2008 he was appointed to the Society of Petroleum Engineers Distinguished Lecture program as an expert in enhanced oil recovery.
  • Early on in his professional career he was trained in oil and gas operations in the United States. He created his own consulting/oil company in 1982, Nautilus Exploration and Associates Ltd., which is still an active Canadian oil and gas company.
    Nautilus Exploration and Associates Ltd. built oil and gas assets selling its oil production in 1999. He then became one of two principal owners of a south eastern oil and gas company, Flatland Exploration Ltd. Flatland built its oil company and sold its assets in 2002. Monea then went on to form a new company for a Chinese investment group out of China in 2006. His oil field connections allowed him to build an exploration and development team. The Chinese company eventually moved its offices to Calgary, Alberta.
  • Monea holds professional engineer and geoscientist designations and is a member of the Canadian Institute of Corporate Directors.

Areas of expertise:

  • Oversaw the construction of the Boundary Dam Integrated Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Project, which involved transforming an aging coal-fired power unit into a reliable, long-term producer of 120 MW of baseload electricity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year. Construction involved two major sections, rebuilding and retrofitting the generating unit that was approaching the end of its useful life, and building a pioneering capture facility on a scale never-before seen. SaskPower has also created a solid business case by taking advantage of the opportunity for the sale of captured by-products. It was determined there was a potential market for the large amount of CO2 that SaskPower would be capturing to sell to nearby oil field operators who could utilize the CO2 in enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Responsible for securing an off-taker for the CO2 for the next 10 years.
  • Participated in the creation and oversaw the construction of the Carbon Capture Test Facility. This project will allow companies around the world to continue developing and testing carbon capture technologies and processes. The findings made here will widen the practical range of carbon capture technologies available for future large-scale projects, reducing emissions around the world. The test facility also allows SaskPower to evaluate various technologies and plan for future carbon capture initiatives in Saskatchewan, using the technology that brings the most benefits to our province. This test facility will explore energy demand, collection efficiency, long-term stability, operation, maintenance, and reliability of amine-based, post-combustion capture technologies. It has been designed to accommodate a wide range of processes. As the work and technology evolves, it can expand into testing other types of capture technologies. Along with the facility, SaskPower is building the technical team to deliver world-class testing and analytical results.
  • Participate in the creation of the SaskPower CCS Global Consortium where interested parties can learn from SaskPower’s experiences. This Consortium will provide a forum for learning about CCS
  • technologies; advance solutions and efficiencies, in CCS technologies and applications; and facilitate the implementation of future CCS projects at lower costs. This will evolve based on members’ input and international developments.
