Nordsøfonden enters new carbon storage partnership


The partners in DUC (Total 43.2 %, Noreco 36.8 %, Nordsøfonden 20 %) are entering into a CCS partnership (Carbon Capture and Storage) with Ørsted and DTU regarding Project Bifrost. The partnership has applied for funding through EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program) to realise the project.

Project Bifrost initially deals with transport and storage of CO2 in DUC's Harald field in the Danish part of the North Sea. The funds are sought for realisation of the project, which at startup is expected to have a storage capacity of 3 million tonnes of CO2 per year. The plan is to reuse existing infrastructure in the North Sea.

Nordsøfonden’s CEO Birgitta Jacobsen says:

“CO2 storage has the potential to become an extremely important tool in achieving Denmark’s CO2 reduction target. I am looking forward to collaborating with the other partners on Bifrost. It is especially interesting that the project aims to demonstrate CO2 storage in a depleted gas field in the Danish North Sea and also to reuse already existing infrastructure.”
