GLOBAL energy partner, AGR, has extended its collaboration with Norwegian state-owned Gassnova SF and finalised a new two-year framework agreement with the option to extend for a further two years.
Gassnova acts on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and facilitates the development of technology and solutions to enable cost efficient and progressive solution for the capture and storage of CO2.
AGR, which has an office in Aberdeen’s Poynernook Road, will act as technical advisors to Gassnova by offering technical expertise across geoscience, reservoir, drilling and well engineering disciplines in addition to facilities and cost engineering.
Svein Sollund, AGR chief executive officer, said: “As the Norwegian government actively progresses its carbon neutral strategy, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a key method for tackling climate change and achieving low emissions targets.
“At AGR, we have worked with the Gassnova team closely over many years with the Longship full scale project being the most recent.
“We are therefore delighted to have been selected once again to support Gassnova and look forward to pooling our technical resources and expertise.”
