CCUS can add value to the economy and help tackle hard to decarbonise sectors.</p><p> </p><p>Our CCUS Action Plan is designed to progress CCUS in the UK, including enabling the UK’s first CCUS facility to be operational from the mid-2020s. CCUS is also likely to play an important role in achieving our Industrial Clusters Mission, creating the world’s first net-zero industrial cluster by 2040.</p><p> </p><p>In progressing CCUS, the UK has already established a robust regulatory framework for CCUS, with regulations applying to licensing, environmental inspection and CO<sub>2</sub> storage, operation and monitoring activities. This means that any CCUS project will need to comply with a rigorous health and safety assessment and require permits and approval from relevant environment agencies, the Health and Safety Executive and the Oil and Gas Authority.</p>

Merchant gas assets (including gas interconnectors and gas storage assets) play key roles in a flexible energy system and offer significant benefits by facilitating the efficient transport, storage, and trading of gas, and by promoting efficient wholesale prices through increased competition. EU legislation currently underpins the regulation of these merchant assets, with domestic regulation overseen by Ofgem, the independent regulator. The government aims to maximise the benefits of gas interconnection as part of its future relationship with the EU.</p> more like this

It would not be appropriate to comment on a specific company which remains open and operational. However, we have assessed the system’s resilience if we were to lose one or more major pieces of infrastructure. We will publish our detailed analysis shortly. In summary, our assessment is that UK gas supply would be resilient to multiple infrastructure losses. We enjoy diverse and competitive supplies of gas which have always historically responded very effectively to the loss of major infrastructure minimising any consumer price effects.</p><p> </p> more like this
