Telling the Norwegian CCS Story

Northern Lights: A European CO2 transport and storage project

Thursday, May 9, 2019 - 3:00 (BST)


In our next webinar of the "Telling the Norwegian CCS Story" series, the Institute will present and discuss Northern Lights. This project is part of the Norwegian full-scale CCS project which will include the capture of CO2 at two industrial facilities (cement and waste-to-energy plants), transport and permanent storage of CO2 in a geological reservoir on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Northern Lights aims to establish an open access CO2 transport and storage service for Europe. It is the first integrated commercial project of its kind able to receive CO2 from a variety of industrial sources.  The project is led by Equinor with two partners Shell and Total. Northern Lights aims to drive the development of CCS in Europe and globally.

The upcoming webinar will discuss:

- Key elements Northern Lights project

- Project status and timeline

- Future potential to decarbonise other CO2 sources and industries across Europe
