Shell Cansolv to test CO2 capture at Mongstad

Jul 04 2014

Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) and Shell Cansolv have agreed on a contract for testing of Cansolv’s advanced CO2 capture process at the existing amine plant at TCM.

The test campaign will be performed using exhaust gas from the Combined Heat and Power Plant at Mongstad, with a focus on process verification and emission control. The testing is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2014 and will last for approximately five months. 

Shell Cansolv's technology is being used at the Boundary Dam power station in Saskatchewan, Canada in a joint project with SaskPower and at Peterhead in the UK in collaboration with Scottish and Southern Energy. 

Tord Lien, the Norwegian minister of Petroleum and Energy, announced the deal in a visit to the plant. "This is a milestone for Technology Centre Mongstad," he said. "I am very content that there is a global interest to use TCM and that new vendors can test out their technologies. That confirms that the facility represents an important contribution to the global efforts to develop cost effective CO2 capture technology."
