Case study of the CO2CRC Otway Project
This report is one of a series of case study reports undertaken by CSIRO as part of an international comparison of communication and engagement practices surrounding carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) projects funded by the Global CCS Institute.
The CO2CRC Otway Project, located in Nirranda South (Victoria, Australia) is developed and led by the Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC). It is Australia’s first demonstration project of deep geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2). This report focuses on the engagement and communication strategies that have taken place between the project developer and stakeholders since the project commenced. The events that took place in relation to specific engagement and communication activities are examined and analysed, and a summary of consultation successes and failures within the project is provided.
