Advanced Fossil Energy Technologies: CCS in Norway

  1. 1. CCS in Norway
  2. 2. Climate Change is a global challenge • Norway sees CCS as an imperative part of a broad mitigation portfolio  to advance the technology we need to share experience and learn from each other • Norway is participating in a range of regional and international initiatives  World Bank CCS Trust Fund  Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum  The 4-Kingdom Initiative  The South African CCS Centre  The Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute • Norway is also cooperating closely with the European Commission, IEA, UNIDO, US Department of Energy etc.
  3. 3. The Nopuegian Gotepnmenr’q CCS-Policy • has ambitious goals for widespread use of CCS • all new gas fired power plants shall be based on technology for CO2-capture • cooperates closely with industrial actors and provides public funding The Energy Sector is vital in Norway • 3rd largest gas exporter • 7th largest oil exporter • 6th largest hydropower producer The petroleum sector has: Co2-Tax/ETS – USD 70 per tonn
  4. 4. Nopuav’q sniqse CO2 storage experience • Since 1996 one million tonnes of CO2 has been stored in a geological formation • Monitoring shows no leakage of CO2
  5. 5. Snøhvit LNG • Since 2008 about 700 000 tonnes CO2 a year has been stored • Piped 160 km back to be stored 2600 m below the seabed
  6. 6. CO2-Technology Centre Mongstad • Groundbreaking First Demonstration Year • Future partnership, third technology • Develop, test and qualify CCS technologies • Partners at the moment: Gassnova, Statoil , Shell and Sasol. • Industrial cooperation: Partners cover costs proportional to ownership share • Two technologies tested: Amine and Chilled Ammonia technology • Two sources of flue gas – provides unique flexibility • Capture capacity: 100 000 tons CO2
