Today, the Norwegian Government presented its CCS strategy which contains broad R&DD activities, national full-scale demonstration in Norway and support to international deployment including funding of up to NOK 125 million in the framework of a joint EU/Members States initiative.

“A comprehensive commitment to CCS is necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Government’s ambition is to realize at least one full-scale demonstration facility by 2020. This is a challenging task. We are working along two paths: Accommodating realization of a full-scale CCS facility in Norway and responding positively to participate in a joint effort to support such a facility in Europe,” says Minister of Petroleum and Energy Tord Lien.
