(Oct 02 2017) The partners have signed a partnership agreement to mature the development of carbon storage on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).


CO2 Capture Project report looks at CO2-EOR transition to CO2 storage

(Oct 01 2017) The CCP (CO2 Capture Project) report provides an in-depth review of the regulatory pathways for transitioning a pure CO2 EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) project into a CO2 storage operation in two key jurisdictions – Texas, USA, and Alberta, Canada.


Launching standards for CO2 transport and storage

(Oct 01 2017) New international standards for storage and transport of carbon dioxide will be presented at a seminar at the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) in Stavanger on 1 November.


CO2 fingerprint method to be tested in Alberta

(Sep 25 2017) The method developed at Edinburgh University that inexpensively monitors the safe storage of CO2 is to be used by a leading research project in Canada.


Leaks will not sink carbon capture and storage

(Sep 01 2017) A Princeton University study shows CO2 storage would not be prone to significant leakage or high costs related to fixing leaks.


Inexpensive and proven water ‘fingerprint’ technique supports deployment of subsurface CO2 storage

(Jul 30 2017) Scottish scientists have found cost-effective and reliable way to monitor the underground storage of carbon dioxide.


Statoil evaluating new CO2 storage project on the Norwegian continental shelf

(Jul 03 2017) Gassnova has assigned Statoil to evaluate the development of carbon storage on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). This will be the first storage site in the world receiving CO2 from several industrial sources.


Pioneering ‘fingerprint’ test will build confidence in geological storage of CO2

(Jun 25 2017) A test developed by Scottish scientists to check for leaks from carbon capture and storage (CCS) sites, where man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are stored deep underground, has been used for the first time in Canada.
