Abstract: MASDAR IS PLANNING to capture CO2 from power plants, smelters, steel works, industrial facilities, and oil and gas processing plants in Abu Dhabi in a phased series of projects. Captured CO2 will be transported in a new national CO2 pipeline network with a nominal capacity of 20 x 106 t/a to oil reservoirs where it will be injected for reservoir management and sequestration.

The design of the wall thickness, pipe toughness, and operating pressure of the network considered fundamental thermodynamic properties of CO2, code requirements, toughness needed to control long ductile fractures, and cost optimization to resolve contention between the different technical requirements and arrive at a safe and economical pipeline design. The work selected a design pressure of 24.5MPa, well above the critical point for CO2 and much higher than is normally seen in conventional oil and gas pipelines. Despite its high operating pressure, the proposed network will be one of the safest pipeline systems in the world today.
