Creating an industrial CCS hub - latest developments in Norway

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is likely to be critical for meeting the aims of the Paris Agreement. It is an essential component of the energy transition process and the transformation of the global energy system during the 21st century.

This will be the first webinar of a series in 2019 that IPIECA is holding to support deployment of CCS and help attendees understand how it can contribute to both the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The webinar will feature insights from Gassnova, who are currently working to establish what could become Europe's first industrial CCS project.

The Gassnova storage project is part of Norwegian authorities’ efforts to develop full-scale carbon capture and storage in Norway. It will capture CO2 from two industrial facilities and transport it by ship to a receiving plant located off the west-coast of Norway.

During the webinar Mike Carpenter, Senior Advisor, CO2 Storage, Gassnova will discuss the project and how CCS can contribute to sustainable development. There will be a Q&A session, during which attendees will have the opportunity to be part of the discussion.
