Strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage. Report 3: country studies Norway
31st March 2009
Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)
Norway has been active in CCS for more than 10 years and dedicates considerable levels of resource to CCS development and is considered by many to be a world leader in CCS development and deployment.
Norway has no dedicated CCS laws and would likely benefit from a more integrated approach, aimed at simplifying, streamlining and filling in gaps in CCS regulation (Birkeland, 2009: 23). Although Norway has chosen to adopt new European legislation on CCS, it is likely that it will choose to amend existing legislation rather than develop a dedicated CCS framework. An overhaul of existing legislation would require the investment of substantial time and resources and it appears that the Norwegian Government prefers to dedicate its resources to the development and deployment of CCS technologies on a case-by-case basis.
