Carbon capture and storage at Mongstad

1st August 2007

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS)

This project, the importance of which the government compared to landing on the moon, has been heavily debated in recent months. Removing and storing the carbon dioxide (CO2) from gas-fired power plants represents a much cleaner way to produce electricity and make use of fossil fuels. This is a new and costly technology. There is a lot of uncertainty associated with these costs, and as it turns out – the Mongstad project will not be in the lower range of these costs.
