Northern Lights

A European CO2 transport and storage network

About the project

The Northern Lights project is part of the Norwegian full-scale CCS project. The full-scale project includes capture of CO2 from industrial capture sources in the Oslo-fjord region and shipping of liquid CO2 from these capture sites to an onshore terminal on the Norwegian west coast. From there, the liquified CO2 will be transported by pipeline to an offshore storage location subsea in the North Sea, for permanent storage. This set-up, using ships from the CO2 capture sites to the Northern Lights onshore site, is a unique solution and enables accommodating large CO2 volumes – from across Europe – that would otherwise have been emitted.

Business Opportunities

The Northern Lights project could help Europe meet its ambition of climate-neutrality by 2050. The ship transport provides flexibility to reach large emission points in Europe, which would enable the scale-up of a CO2 transport and storage network open to CO2 capture sites across Europe.
