Shell and Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) are behind the scheme to transform the town's power station.

Greenhouse gas emissions would be captured and transported to the Shell-operated Goldeneye gas field in the North Sea.

Exhibitions will begin on Wednesday at nearby Boddam.

They will continue in Peterhead, Cruden Bay, Fraserburgh and Aberdeen.

The developers hope it could be up and running before the end of the decade.

Paul Garnham, Shell's project manager for the Peterhead CCS Project, said: "The project clearly still has a long way to go, but we want to share our plans with the local communities at an early stage to allow them several opportunities to provide us with feedback as we progress."
