ImpreCCS - Impact of CO2 impurities and additives in CCS
High costs and risks remain significant barriers to large-scale implementation of carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS).
POREPAC - Preventing loss of near-well permeability in CO2 injection wells
Underground CO2 storage entails injecting CO2 into porous rock reservoirs. The rock pores may for various reasons clog during the operation, such that the flow is reduced or even stopped. In the POREPAC project we will try to gain understanding of how the conditions around the injection well, as well as starts and stops in the injection, affect the risk of clogging.
MACH-2 - Membrane-Assisted CO2 capture through liquefaction for clean H2 production
The MACH-2 project will develop and demonstrate the potential of an innovative hybrid technology for H2 production with CO2 capture enabling high carbon capture rates with high purity CO2 and H2 and a hydrogen cost comparable to conventional technologies without capture.
EM4CO2 - Accelerating CSEM technology for efficient and quantitative CO2 monitoring
The primary objective of this project is to develop and apply a cost-efficient CO2 monitoring concept using time-lapse CSEM and demonstrate its readiness for the future Norwegian large-scale CO2 storage project (Smeaheia/Johansen).
Tophole monitoring of permanently plugged wells
The primary objective of the project is to develop a novel cost-efficient method for tophole/non-invasive monitoring of permanently plugged wells that are cut below surface/seafloor.
Towards clean and stable hydrogen reheat combustion in gas turbines (Reheat2H2)
The primary objective is to build a knowledge-based stability model for H2 reheat flames to enable hydrogen end-use for largescale power generation in pre-combustion CCS (CLIMIT scope) and power-to-H2- to-power (ENERGIX scope) schemes.

Quantification of fault-related leakage risk (FRISK)
The main goal is to reduce the uncertainty in fault-related leakage risk for large-scale CO2 storage by developing an improved fault derisking framework that includes dynamic pressure changes and along-fault fluid migration.
