The main objective of ECCO is to facilitate robust strategic decision making regarding early and future implementation of CO2 value chains for Europe in the face of uncertainty. The project will provide recommendations enabling cost-effective use of the CO2 being produced from zero-emission power plants and other industries in Europe by exploring the assets and challenges of CO2 for enhanced hydrocarbon production (EOR/EGR) in a value-chain context. ECCO responds to the need for a European joint effort towards overcoming the barriers to the deployment of CCS. The core group of the project is constituted by 18 legal entities, all of them committed to the execution of ECCO. These encompass 7 energy providers (oil & gas companies and utilities), 2 engineering companies, 1 NGO and 8 highly ranked RTD providers representing bordering countries around the North Sea basin and in Central and Eastern Europe. ECCO -short for European Value Chain for CO2- is designed as a Collaborative Project (small to medium scale focused project). The R&D activities are structured in four sub-projects (SP) directly responding to the objectives of the Work Programme: SP1 ECCO dissemination and training SP2 CCS analysis and recommendations SP3 CO2 value chain methodology and tool development SP4 Reservoir technology for EOR/EGR The knowledge, methods, and tools developed in ECCO shall influence future CCS initiatives by enabling the industrial players and the authorities to analyse, understand, and make sound decisions within the topic of CO2 value chains. Key expected impacts of ECCO, all complying with the Work Programme are: Underpin the realisation of CO2 value chains for captured CO2 from large point sources for CO2 injection in petroleum reservoirs (EOR/EGR) and CO2 storage. Improve security of supply by enabling sustainable use of fossil fuels, protracting increases in fuel imports by making better use of existing resources and shortening time t
