Location(s): Webinar

June 18, 2020 - 9:00 (Washington) / 14:00 (London) / 15:00 (Brussels) / 22:00 (Tokyo) / 23:00 (Melbourne)


The European Green Deal recognises the important role of carbon capture, utilisation and storage as a key technology for industrial decarbonisation. There are currently two operating large-scale CCS facilities in Europe, both in Norway.  In this webinar we will examine the development of what may become Europe’s next CCS facilities; the Full-Scale Project in Norway and the Porthos project in the Netherlands. Final investment decision is anticipated for each of these critical projects in the next 12 months. Recent developments and key steps leading to Final Investment Decision will be outlined. In addition, we will discuss how it is hoped these facilities might develop and contribute to decarbonisation more widely.
