Carbon Capture Collaboration between Norway and USA

A workshop on collaboration between USA and Norway on CO2 capture was held at the Research Council of Norway, Drammensveien 288, Lysaker, Oslo, Norway, 3 may 2018.

The focus of the workshop washer to advance the technology development of capture processes. Presentations included experience and planning from testing at TCM (Technology Centre Mongstad). Four US companies have projects with CLIMIT funding including collaboration with SINTEF and five companies are preparing to test at the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM). ION has completed their campaign. Aker Solutions built the amine unit at TCM and has also completed their campaigns. Tests at TCM are very valuable and the arrangement offers good opportunities for both the technology developer side as well as TCM. Learnings from yesterday's capture breakout session on US-Norway collaboration was a part of the discussions. On 4thMay a delegation from the Capture workshop travelled to Bergen and visited TCM to explore the site for future cooperation.

The workshop summary can be found here. The following presentations were given (not all available yet):

CO2 Storage Data Consortium - launch

16 November 2016: The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) launched


The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) – was launched 16 November 2016 at the GHGT13 conference in Lausanne, Switzerland. The CSDC is a new international network aimed at promoting data sharing from pioneering CO2 storage projects in order to accelerate innovation and deployment of CCS. The aim of the meeting was to explain the objectives and to gain feedback from potential participants. The CO2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) Secretariat can be contacted at <csdc-secretariat@sintef.no>.
