This Report is intended to help designers evaluate key decisions and mitigate risks unique to a subsea CCS system. Additionally, the document refers to other documents that will aid in specification and design of a subsea CCS system. Unique aspects of subsea CCS systems are highlighted and recommendations or options to address design decisions are offered.
