Snøhvit is an LNG development in the Barents Sea offshore Norway. The LNG facility, where the CO2 is captured, is located on the island of Melkoya near Hammerfest, northern Norway, and the storage site is offshore at the Snøhvit gas project field development area in the Barents Sea (around 150 km north-west of Hammerfest). The targeted CO2 injection reservoir is situated around 2.6 km below the sea surface (seabed depth is around 330 meters). Injection of CO2 began in 2008 and to date nearly 3 million tonnes of CO2 has been injected. The amine-based CO2 removal process is designed to capture 0.7 million tonnes of CO2 annually when the Snøhvit LNG facility is at full capacity. The Snøhvit project employs a monitoring and verification programme to investigate the behaviour of CO2 underground (partly funded by the European Union). For more information, please see here.
