Macro Results from the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model

Date: 7/21/2014
Contact: David Morgan

A supplementary file for the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model spreadsheet file. The FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model spreadsheet contains an Excel macro that calculates the break-even first year price (or cost) for injection formations selected by the user from the injection formation database in the model. Each time the macro is run, the results for all selected formations are stored in a separate sheet within this supplementary file. For the macro to work correctly, this supplementary file must be stored in the folder where the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model spreadsheet file is stored.


FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model: Model Description and Baseline Results

Date: 7/18/2014
Contact: David Morgan

A report that describes the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model, and presents the assumptions and results for the Baseline Case. The Baseline Case provides an estimate of storage costs based on currently available technology.


FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model: User's Manual

Date: 7/18/2014
Contact: Timothy Grant

This User's Manual provides a description of the operation of the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model.  A short discussion of each of the four modules comprising the cost model is provided.  Essential input data for each module and modeling results are explained in some detail.


FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model

Date: 7/18/2014
Contact: Timothy Grant

The CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model calculates the net present value for a project that stores CO2 in a saline aquifer. The model will also calculate the break-even first year price (or cost) for storing a tonne of CO2 by finding the price that yields a net present value of zero for the project.The model includes the capital costs, operating costs, financing costs and revenues for the project. The model also includes the costs of addressing the EPA's requirements for Class VI injection wells, including financial responsibility.


FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model: Model Overview

Date: 7/11/2014
Contact: David Morgan

A presentation that provides an overview of the FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model


FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model: Description and User's Manual

Date: 7/11/2014
Contact: David Morgan

A report that describes the FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model, discusses user input to the model and provides example output from the model.


FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model

Date: 7/11/2014
Contact: David Morgan

The FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model is a spreadsheet-based tool that calculates the net present value for a project that transports liquid CO2 by pipeline. The model includes the capital costs, operating costs, financing costs and revenues for the project. The model can calculate the break-even first year price (or cost) for transporting a tonne of CO2 by finding the price that yields a net present value of zero for the project. The user provides a variety of inputs including the annual mass of CO2 to be transported, the pipeline length, the years of operation and financial parameters.


Produced Waters: Expansion of the CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model - Development of Cost Data for Water Production, Utilization, and Disposal

Date: 5/23/2014
Contact: Timothy Grant

This slide deck presentation discusses production/withdrawal of CO2 storage reservoir formation waters and surface treatment of these waters for utilization and/or disposal.  Cost data is provided for treatment and disposal methods discussed.


Acquisition and Development of Selected Cost Data for Saline Storage and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)

Date: 5/14/2014
Contact: Timothy Grant

This report presents cost data and recommends cost estimation methods for costs associated with CO2 injection and surface facility management, including well equipment, onsite booster compression.  Where water is produced for pressure management in saline aquifers, costs for water production, water injection, and associated surface treatment and wellhead equipment (along with associated piping and facilities) is provided.  Comparable cost estimation recommendations are provided for CO2-EOR operations, including the costs associated with oil and water management and production, and CO2 recycling.


Economic Feasibility of CO2 Capture Retrofits for the U.S. Coal Fleet: Impacts of R&D and CO2 EOR Revenue

Date: 6/26/2013
Contact: Gregory Hackett

In a 2nd generation CO2 capture market (2030) with no carbon regulations, compare business-as-usual to CO2 retrofits for enhanced oil recovery. Specifically, this presentation discusses the CCRD database design and operational details, discusses the improvements of 2nd generation capture technology, and how EOR revenue promotes more competitive dispatch.


Summary of Costs Associated with Seismic Data Acquisition and Processing

Date: 4/12/2013
Contact: David Morgan

A summary of cost data for seismic data acquisition and processing used in the FE/NETL CO2 Saline Storage Cost Model. Cost data are presented for 2-D seismic, 3-D seismic, vertical seismic profiling, crosswell seismic and microseismic technologies.


FE/NETL CTS-Saline Cost Model (Presentation)

Date: 10/17/2012
Contact: Timothy Grant

This presentation illustrates the basic framework of the FE/NETL CTS-Saline Cost Model. A test matrix was developed to test the model under different storage project scenarios. The results of this test matrix are presented. Also, an illustrative example is provided of how the cost model can be used to estimate the cost-reducing potential of NETL's R&D work in carbon storage.


NETL CO2 Injection and Storage Cost Model

Date: 2/7/2012
Contact: Timothy Grant

The basic framework for this model provides costs for compliance with various sections of EPA's Class VI regulation and Subpart RR of the GHG Reporting Program. Cost analysis at two levels is provided by this model: site specific where the modeler can enter their own reservoir and cost data and regional in the form of cost supply curves. This model includes costs from initial regional geologic evaluation through site characterization, permitting, injection/MVA operations, post-injection site care to final site closure and transfer to long-term stewardship. A geologic and cost database was developed to support this model.


Power Systems Financial Model Version 6.6 and User's Guide

Date: 5/9/2011
Contact: William Summers

The NETL Power System Financial Model, Version 6.6, is an Excel based Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model that calculates the investment decision criteria used by energy project developers to evaluate the financial performance of power systems, including (but not limited to) integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), natural gas combined cycle, and various coal conversion systems, including co-production of liquid fuel and power. The model can also be used for renewable power generation.
