1 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law CCS and Public Engagement – The Netherlands Dr. Martha Roggenkamp Professor of Energy Law Groningen Centre of Energy Law, University of Groningen, NL

2 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law Groningen Centre of Energy Law: Established in 2006 Research projects: - CCS research:1 PhD + part time post doc - Offshore energy: 2 PhD + 1 post doc - Market liberalisation/new energy: 2 PhD - Emissions trading: 3 PhD and 2 ass.prof

3 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law Gas Reservoirs – Potential Storage

4 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law Public Engagement – The Netherlands > CCS = 3 separate activities/no integrated approach. Focus is on storage > Onshore storage involve many permits > Such permit procedures can take a long time (subsequent complaint/appeal procedures) > In 2009 National Coordinating Law/Crisis and Repair Act: Government can streamline/limit the number of procedures > Coordinating Law applies if a project is of national interest (gives Minister descritionary powers/overruling local governments)

5 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law CCS in the Netherlands: > Initially great interest – the Netherlands as CO2 hub of Northern Europe > Potentially many (soon to be) depleted gas fields > Focus on Rotterdam (Barendrecht) and Groningen (Eemshaven) – demonstration projects envisaged > Storage licence under the Mining Act > CO2 storage projects are of national interest (Minister may overrule local governments) and part of Crises and Repair Act (no appeals)

6 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law Result: > Minister has the final decision making power. The current Minister/government has decided that there will be no CO2 storage onshore > CO2 storage projects will be offshore: ROAD and Green Hydrogen > These projects involve capture in Rotterdam area and storage in a depleted/producing field in Dutch EEZ (P18)and Danish EEZ (Maersk). Both involve also EHR > Transport via a CO2 hub on the Maasvlakte via pipeline (P18) or ship

7 Date faculty of lawgroningen centre of energy law Some concluding comments: > CO2 capture and transport is treated different, depending on its ultimate use: permanent storage and/or commercial use > The discussion on CO2 storage now also seem to have a negative effect other projects like gas storage
