Links related to the CO2 capture and storage:
  • CO2 Capture Project - The CO2 Capture Project is an international effort funded by eight of the world's leading energy companies. This project intends to address the issue of reducing emissions in a manner that will contribute to an environmentally acceptable and competitively priced continuous energy supply for the world.
  • CO2STORE - The aim of the CO2STORE is to prepare the ground for widespread underground storage of CO2 in aquifers. CO2STORE is a research project with 19 participants from industry and research institutes, partly funded by the European Union. CO2STORE is a follow-up of the two Saline Aquifer CO2 Storage (SACS) research projects.
  • Department of Reservoir Technology - SINTEF Petroleum Research.
  • The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEA GHG) is an international collaboration which aims to:
    - Evaluate technologies for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases;
    - Disseminate the results of these studies;
    - Identify targets for research, development and demonstration and promote the appropriate work.
  • Saline Aquifer CO2 Storage (SACS) – an offshore demonstration at the Sleipner field.
  • US-Norway Summer School - The US-Norway Summer School is a result of a co-operation between USA and Norway regarding R&D in CO2 handling. The first Summer School was held in August 9th-17th 2004 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. The subject was ”Carbon Capture & Storage in Geologic Formations”.
