Norway’s CO2 carbon capture, transport and storage project Longship Q&A CO₂ will be captured at Norcem’s cement factory and Oslo Fortum Varme’s waste incineration plant, liquefied and collected by ships. It will then be transported to an intermediate storage facility in Øygarden northwest of Bergen, before it is pumped through pipes to the Norwegian continental shelf, where it will be stored safely 2600 meters below the seabed. Initially, there is a storage capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of CO₂ per year at the storage site, while the pipe from the onshore facility to the reservoir is dimensioned for 5 million tonnes. Northern Lights, which is responsible for the transport and storage part of Longship, plans to increase storage capacity to 5 million tonnes per year through an additional development phase (Phase 2) and an increasing customer base.
