Statoil: Suppliers of CO2 capture technology chosen

Gassnova and Statoil have chosen suppliers of CO2 capture technology to participate in a technology qualification program for full-scale CO2 capture (CCM) at Mongstad north of Bergen.

In late spring, the CCM project announced a technology qualification program for all companies which have technology that could be used to capture CO2 from the existing combined heat and power plant at Mongstad.

 

This was an open international process where the goal was to select companies for technology qualification for full scale capture of CO2.



The following companies have been selected to participate in the technology qualification program: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, LTD., ALSTOM Carbon Capture GmbH, Siemens AG, Aker Clean Carbon and Huaneng-CERI Powerspan Joint Venture. The purpose of the technology qualification program is to qualify at least one technology and demonstrate that it can be scaled up and used at the combined heat and power plant at Mongstad, and that it will meet all HSE requirements.

 

“CO2 capture, transportation and storage is unquestionably required to combat climate change. Norway has undertaken an important role, and succeeding with the Mongstad project and the technology qualification program is vital in this context.  We are therefore very pleased with the participation from internationally leading technology suppliers representing different capture technologies. We are looking forward to work together with them”, says Bjørn-Erik Haugan, CEO of Gassnova SF.

 

Successful results in the technology qualification program should allow for a concept selection including selection of technology in first half of 2014.

 

Participation in the technology qualification program will provide technology suppliers with an opportunity to demonstrate its technology for a full-scale plant at Mongstad.



Multiple vendors can bid on a FEED (Front End Engineering and Design) based on the concept selected, and the final investment decision will be put forth to the Parliament in 2016.
