For more than 20 years, Norway has been a frontrunner in the efforts to develop CCS. The Norwegian authorities want to contribute to the progress of this important technology through developing a cost-effective solution for full-scale CO2-capture and storage in Norway, provided that it leads to technology development internationally. To be successful, this project needs to be followed by other CCS projects. From the Norwegian perspective, the state and the industry need to share both costs and risks.
The Norwegian full-scale CCS project is comprised of two capture projects: Norcem, a HeidelbergCement subsidiary, are studying capture from a cement plant and Fortum Oslo Varme are studying capture from a waste incineration plant. CO2 will be transported by ship to an onshore terminal on the Norwegian west coast and from there transported by pipeline to an offshore storage complex under the North Sea. The transport and storage part is planned by the Northern Lights project, a partnership between Equinor, Shell and Total. The project is on track for an investment decision in 2020/2021. This webinar will provide an update on recent developments in the project and plans for the way forward.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, November 14th at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5) / 14:00 Central European Time (UTC+1). The session will last approximately 1 hour. The event will be hosted by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The webinar presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
