The carbon capture and storage project, Northern Lights is expected to be the maiden storage project site across the globe to receive CO2 from industrial sources located in different European countries.

Paris/France – Air Liquide has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Equinor and its partners (Shell and Total) to explore collaboration in a CO2 capture and storage project, Northern Lights. The Northern Lights project is aimed to mature the development of offshore carbon storage on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and has the potential to be the first storage project site in the world receiving CO2 from industrial sources in several European countries.

Under the frame of this MOU the parties will explore the possibility of cooperating in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) development, which includes CO2 capture, liquefaction, and transportation to an offshore natural reservoir.

This initiative illustrates Air Liquide’s commitment to mitigate climate change. As part of its global approach, Air Liquide not only takes actions to reduce the carbon intensity of its activities, but also works with its customers towards a sustainable industry and contributes to the development of a low carbon society. Air Liquide offers and develops an array of technical solutions for industry and transport, such as oxy-combustion, electrolysis-based carbon free hydrogen, or biomethane.

In the frame of Energy Transition, CCS is one of the pathways to contribute to decarbonising industries, and can be implemented with readily available technologies for an affordable abatement of large quantities of CO2 emissions.

François Jackow, Executive Vice-President and a member of the Executive Committee supervising industrial activities in Europe, said: “We are pleased to be part of this innovative initiative. The industry has a major role to play in addressing climate change through the development of new technologies and new value chains for the low carbon transition. As part of its global approach to climate, Air Liquide has committed to promote solutions in order to reduce carbon footprint”.
