The Full-scale CCS Project in Norway is one of the first industrial CCS projects to develop an open access infrastructure with the intent and the capacity to store significant volumes of CO2 from across the European continent.
Norway has more than 20 years of experience with CO2 storage. CCS research and development a prioritized area for the governments in this oil-rich nation for decades.
The Full-scale project in Norway shall contribute to the development of CCS, in order to reach long term climate goals in Norway and the EU, cost effectively.
Planning of the Norwegian full-scale CCS project in Norway is today in an advanced study phase.
Fortum Oslo Varme and Norcem are planning to build their own capture facilities. The Northern Lights consortium will handle the transportation and storage.
Subsidies and cooperation between government and industry are necessary to realize a demonstration project as ambitious as the Full-scale CCS project in Norway.
Fortum Oslo Varme plans to capture 400 000 tonnes of CO2 from their waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Oslo.
Norcem plans to capture 400 000 tonnes of CO2 from their cement plant in South-East Norway.
Equinor, Shell and Total form the transport and storage consortium of Northern Lights.
