The world is on the hunt for opportunities to get rid of the problematic CO2
gas. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has shown it is possible to store vast volumes on the Norwegian shelf.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) is completing the mapping of potential CO2
stores on the Norwegian shelf by publishing a compiled, revised edition of the previously published atlases.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) has completed the mapping of possible CO 2 storage sites on the Norwegian shelf, and will publish an atlas of the southern part of the Barents Sea today.
Carbon dioxide (CO2
) must be captured and stored to keep the world from overheating. Work is now under way in western Norway to make this technology cheaper and more efficient.
The Norwegian Sea may be able to store 5.5 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide, according to the NPD’s new storage atlas. This is more than 100 times Norway’s total CO2
discharge last year.
The coal-fired power station at the Longyearbyen mining settlement in Norway’s Svalbard islands is being seen as a possible location for carbon capture and storage (CCS).
The Norwegian sector of the North Sea could accommodate as much as 70 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide, according to a storage atlas for this greenhouse gas produced by the NPD.
An atlas describing possible subsurface storage locations for carbon dioxide in the Norwegian part of the North Sea will be submitted to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy today.
The greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) can be captured, transported and injected into storage areas where it will not leak out and harm the environment. Geologist Ine Gjeldvik of the Norwegian...
