Expertise and capacity

A major option to reduce CO2 emissions is to store industrial CO2 in geological formations. SINTEF PR has an over 20 year record in development of technology for this concept e.g. conceptual and economical analysis, numerical simulation of CO2 disposal and underground transport of CO2 and core flooding and phase behaviour.

SINTEF PR contributes in several large EU projects on CO storage like e.g. ECCO, CASTOR, ULCOS, DYNAMIS, CO2GEONET and RISCS. Other big project mainly financed by the Norwegian Research Council and/or the industry is FME BIGCCS: International CCS Research Center, KMB BIGCO2 and CO2 Field Lab.
