Carbon capture and storage projects under the climate policy regime: The case of Halten CO2
Carbon capture and storage projects under the climate policy regime: The case of Halten CO2

1st December 2007

Organisation(s): Center for International Climate and Environmental Research

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The aim of this study is to assess institutional, political and legislative issues associated with the planned “CO2 value chain from Tjeldbergodden to Draugen and Heidrun” industrial project. The Draugen and Heidrun oil reservoirs are two important components of the value chain and are situated on the Halten Bank off mid-Norway. For short we refer to the project as the “Halten CO2 project”. This study is supplemented by an economic study and a study of legislative issues. The economic study is carried out by CICERO and focuses on the social value of the Tjeldbergodden industrial project. The legislative study focuses on environmental liability, discusses the relevant Norwegian legislation, and point out which adjustments Norwegian authorities should consider before CO2 chains become operative in Norway. It is carried out by the Scandinavian Institute of Marine Law at University of Oslo (Berger, 2007a and 2007b).

An international regulatory framework for risk governance of carbon capture and storage
An international regulatory framework for risk governance of carbon capture and storage

1st May 2007

Organisation(s): Center for International Climate and Environmental Research

Topic(s): Engineering and project delivery, Law and regulation, Policy

CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in geological structures and its possible risks have been topics of extensive study in recent years. In contrast, the legal and regulatory structures necessary to support widespread capture and long-term, secure storage have received far less attention. This essay seeks to bridge this gap by building on existing CCS risk literature and outlining some of the key components of an international risk governance framework necessary for the widespread diffusion of CCS. The discussion is summarized by making preliminary recommendations on attributes that an effective regulatory regime for CCS should possess.
