OSLO, Norway — The Norwegian Ministry of Energy has opened two new areas for offshore CO2 storage covering defined blocks in the North Sea.

It is the sixth time the Ministry has made available acreage for CO2 storage on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Applications are due to be submitted by April 24.

Various companies have approached the Ministry concerning one or more of the storage areas, and those enquiries have formed the basis for the areas now opened.

A further announcement and potential allocation of an area for a storage permit will take place after the permitting process, under which applicants must show that they have a sufficiently good basis for applying.
