Capture studies

The Full-scale CCS project in Norway was initiated when the government asked Gassnova to explore possibilities for a Full-scale CCS project, beyond the existing work at Mongstad. The following reports relate to CO2 capture:

Gassnova delivered a status report in December 2012 highlighting emissions sources that were considered relevant for further study. 

In May 2015 Gassnova submitted a pre-feasibility report, “Study report on potential full-scale CCS projects in Norway”, which identified several emission sources and storage sites that may be technically feasible for a CCS project. It also identified industrial players that may be interested in participating further. 

In the autumn of 2015, the Government decided to continue this work and initiated a feasibility study. 

Gassnova completed that study in November 2016, ‘Feasibility Study on Full-scale CCS in Norway’. 

Fortum Oslo Varme, Norcem and Yara finished their concept studies for CO2 capture in 2017. 

The Yara project was stopped in 2018.
