The article reports on the decision of BP to cancel its carbon capture and storage (CCS) scheme, an innovative proposal based on the Peterhead power station in northeast Scotland and the depleted Miller Field in the North Sea. According to BP, the £500 million venture was a victim of government delays in helping to underwrite the cost of the project. A BP spokesman states that the company could no longer meet the cost of maintaining a production rig at the field.
