ABSTRACT
The reports on the plan of the Australian government to support the world's largest carbon dioxide capture and storage project at Barrow Island in Western Australia. The Department of Environment and Heritage has provided funding from its $500 million Low Emissions Technology Demonstration Fund to support Chevron with its CO2 Injection project. The project is expected to capture carbon dioxide from the Gorgon gas field and inject it deep underground. Furthermore, the project has the potential to reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by up to three million tonnes.
