Carbon Capture Utilizationand Storage -CC(U)S- is one of the measures recommended by the UN Climate Panelto limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Despite recent projectstart-ups and a series of projects under development, CCUS in industry and fueltransformation is not on track to reach the Sustainable Development Scenario(SDS) level of 450 Mtpa by 2030

An important piece of the puzzle in Norway is the new full-scale CCS project, aimed at capturing CO2 from industrial sources and storing it beneath the North Sea. Equinor, together with partners Shell and Total in the Northern Lights partnership, is responsible, and captured CO2 from industry in the Oslofjord area will be transported to terminal in Øygarden in Vestlandet, and by pipeline transported to a storage site under the seabed in the North Sea, for permanent storage.
Norwegian research communities have an extensive research portfolio in CC(U)S, along with the 20 years of industrial experience on CO2 storage on the Norwegian Continental shelf.
The EOV partners are well equipped to the required interdisciplinary of CC(U)S, and have long and strong experience in cross-sector collaboration between technology, natural- and social sciences, and contribute in solving challenges and contribute with innovation and development to accelerate the deployment and upscaling of CC(U)S.
The competence in EOV springs from several decades of experience in a wide range of relevant areas, spanning from pore scale to field scale offshore, within CO2 storage, CO2-EOR and CCUS, for instance in areas like:
- storage capacity and injection strategies
- flow modelling and digital reservoir management
- marine monitoring
- CO2 use in energy systems
- hydrogen and other industrial production and circularity
The goal for OTICS is to achieve high-quality research through international and national cooperation within Ocean Technology
NCS 2030 - National Centre for Sustainable Subsurface Utilization of the Norwegian Continental Shelf
Over the next eight years, the researchers will develop new knowledge on how the subsurface can be used in the green shift.
EOV partner University of Bergen leads ACT funded project ACTOM and EOV partner NORCE is also involved in the work.
The DigiMon project aims to develop and demonstrate an affordable, flexible, and smart monitoring system, for CO2 storage reservoirs.
