Chapter in The European Energy Handbook

Arntzen de Besche has written the Norwegian chapter in the eighth edition of the book The European Energy Handbook 2014

Full-scale carbon capture and storage facility at Mongstad

On 20 September 2013 the Norwegian government announced that the development of full scale CO2 capture at Mongstad is discontinued. The Technology Centre Mongstad, which is one of the world's largest and most advanced, will be continued. The government did also announce its objective to realise another full scale CO2 capture project by 2020. However, following the general election in September, a new government took office on 16 October 2013, and it is yet to be seen whether it will continue the previous government's CCS projects.
