Global warming, a rise in global temperatures average, is caused mainly by carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is one of the best solution to mitigate CO2. This technology is a series of activities starting from capturing CO2 (source), transporting it, and storing it to the suitable geological sink (sink). In the CCS process, matching between source and sink may face some obstacles, such as time availability, capacity limit, and location. These problems can be solved by pinch design method. The development of multi region CCS process was conducted in this study, with of South Sumatra and East Java as boundary area with a total of five sources and six sinks. The development was done by calculating capturable CO2 and cost needed using simultaneous and sequential method with time difference (Δtmin) 0, 5, and 10 years. The result of this research shows sequential method of CCS can capture the biggest amount of CO2 with 93.86% in Δtmin 0 years, while simultaneous method can capture 83.94% of CO2 in Δtmin 0 years. The least total annual cost is found in simultaneous method with Δtmin 4.6 years, which is US$ 159,259,000, compared to sequential method with Δtmin 4.5 years, which is US$ 166,667,000. Sequential method is best used if the CCS design prefers quantity of capturable CO2 over the cost needed.
