Good potential for succeeding with CCS in Norway

On 4 July 2016, the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy presented the feasibility study report on full-scale carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS) in Norway. The studies show that realising a full-scale CCS chain in Norway by 2022 is possible and at lower costs than for projects considered in Norway earlier.
