Norwegian and Canadian companies, research institutions and universities have over the last decades developed strong competence and experience in H2 and CCS technologies. These sectors are important parts of Norway’s decarbonization strategy.
There are many similarities between Norway and Canada, including an abundance of natural resources and closeness to the Artic. Both are fossil fuel rich countries committed to environmentally sustainable resource management and shifting to a net zero economy. There is a national push to further develop the CO2 value chains and CCUS as a solution to cutting GHG emissions. The Canadian government launched its Hydrogen Strategy in 2020 and a CCUS strategy is expected to be released this spring:
Since H2 and CCS are important focus areas for both Norway and Canada, with growing expertise and capabilities in both countries, collaboration in these areas would accelerate our respective decarbonization efforts.
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.
Today, hydrogen technologies, solution providers and projects in Norway are emerging across the entire value chain, including;
Norway has extensive experience with CCS, both capture, transport, offshore 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.
