There was an opportunity for the Carbon Capture Storage scheme to be built in Peterhead in Aberdeenshire 10 years ago, Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond has said in response to the UK Government's announcement that it has approved the plan.
Mr Salmond said: "Ten years ago there was an opportunity to go ahead with a scheme at Peterhead - the Miller project - which would have cost the same as onshore wind farm in terms of energy incentives. It should have gone ahead then - it should be proceeded with now."
David Cameron is expected to claim that only the UK Government has the financial muscle to boost oil production in the North Sea.
Is it a coincide the Cabinets of both the UK and Scottish governments are meeting in Aberdeenshire on the same day? Of course not.
