Norwegian Energy Symposium: H2 & CCS Solutions and Technology

Oil & gas midstream _LNG

November 9-10, 14:00 - 18 AEDT [04:00 - 08:00 CET)

Market: Australia


In collaboration with the Norwegian Embassy in Canberra, we are hosting a Virtual Energy Symposium in November 2021 with focus on the Hydrogen (H2) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) value chains. The Symposium will showcase Norwegian technology and solutions providers with strong competence and experience in H2 and CCS. 

Norwegian companies, research institutes, and universities have over the last decades developed strong competence and experience in H2 and CCS technologies. Both sectors form a key part of Norway’s decarbonisation strategy.

The Australian government’s Clean Technology Roadmap announced the first   Low Emissions Technology Statement   in Sep 2020. H2 and CCS where 2 of the 5 Priority areas in this Statement. Australia is now seeing an unprecedented activity level in these two sectors, Hydrogen and CCS.

Since H2 and CCS are important focus areas for both Norway and Australia, with growing expertise and capabilities in both countries, collaboration in these areas could assist in accelerating our respective decarbonisation efforts.

18:00 Close day 2


Norwegian industrial actors have produced and utilized hydrogen in large scale since 1927. Companies like Norsk Hydro developed their own electrolyser technologies that are today used all around the world.

Hydrogen from the industrial and research arenas were brought to the public refuelling arena in Norway in the beginning of 2000 through the HyNor-project, which was established to demonstrate the readiness of hydrogen as an alternative fuel for cars.

Today, hydrogen technologies, solution providers and projects in Norway are emerging across the entire value chain, including;

  • Industrial applications
  • Transport and Maritime
  • Hydrogen use in the energy system


Norway has extensive experience with CCS, both capture, transport, temp storage and injection/monitoring with projects like Sleipner and Snøhvit having injected CO2 successfully for more than 2 decades.

In 2010 Norway established a large-scale carbon capture demonstration facility (Technology Centre Mongstad, ‘TCM’). Several new well-stream and post-combustion capture technologies have emerged from this facility.

In February 2021, Norway took FID on the Longship project capturing CO2 from industrial sources and transport and storage in Northern Lights project, the world’s first open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure. Through these initiative, a lot of technologies/solutions have emerged and ongoing R&D is high on the agenda.
