The development potential of CO2 capture and geological storage projects in Peru: a proposal

Keywords: CCS, CO2, Climate change mitigaction, public acceptance


CO2 capture and geological storage (CCS) is an alternative for climate change mitigation that has not been fully analyzed in the context of the western region of South America. The goal of this document is to present the results of previous research on potential areas for the geological storage of CO2 in Peru, and to offer recommendations for the implementation of a public policy in Peru. The previous study concluded that it is possible to conduct geological storage at some hydrocarbon extraction sites located in the Piura region, given their geological conditions, on-site infrastructure, and connection to the principal sources of CO2 emissions. In light of these findings, the establishment of a methodological and procedural approach for CCS projects that includes social acceptance is recommended.
