Northern Lights – Site preparation and Marine structures

CO2 capture and storage

Northern Lights is a new CO2 capture and storage project on the Norwegian continental shelf developed by Statoil and Gassnova. The project is a part of Norwegian authorities’ efforts to develop full-scale carbon capture and storage, and is a contribution to reduce carbon footprint and to achieve the global climate targets.

The CO2 shall be captured from several industrial sources, as the first in the world, transported by ships to an onshore terminal and further injected in a reservoir 1000-2000 meters below seabed via a pipeline.

Statoil awarded Multiconsult the contract for the onshore terminal site preparation and marine structures.

Scope of work

The scope of work for Multiconsult was site preparation and marine structures in connection with the onshore carbon storage terminal.

Multiconsult performed the design of the jetties and harbor facilities, site preparation and layout, water and sewage systems, roads and culverts, electrical and telecommunication, temporaries and administration complex. The scope of work was executed with focus on the overall operational functionality of the carbon capture and storage chain.

The scope of services for the Northern Lights site preparation and marine structures included concept, FEED, detailed engineering and follow-on for Multiconsult.
