The contractor has received a letter of award for the EPC of the proposed plant facilities at the Energiparken in Øygarden, near Bergen, Norway.
This will receive and store liquid CO2 from various industrial capture sites, for subsequent export through a pump and pipeline system for injection in a reservoir 2,600 m (8,530 ft) beneath the North Sea.
