Norway is poking around Troll, it’s biggest North Sea oil and gas field, to see if it is a good spot to store CO2. The country is interested in curbing emissions, and are weighing locations for a CCS program. Under the seabed at Sleipner gas field, StatioilHydro has been storing CO2 stripped from their natural gas stream for 12 years. But this new endeavor would lock away emissions from on-shore power plants, which is a horse of a different color. There are plenty of processes in the works for capturing the CO2 from power plants, and several projects that sequester what is captured. But news like this highlights the interest people have on doing this as a regular part of business.
