Equinor ASA : - Preparing the onshore facilities for the Northern Lights project

10/21/2020 | 11:53am EST

In connection with the Northern Lights project, Equinor has signed a contract with Skanska for building site preparation and the construction of jetty facilities for the CO2 receiving terminal.

Equinor will also sign a lease agreement with CCB Kollsnes for the area for the temporary project office.

'Today we move parts of the Northern Lights project to Kollsnes, allowing the necessary preparations for the development of the receiving terminal to start pending the possible approval of the Langskip project by the Norwegian government in the course of the year. A total of 10-15 people from Equinor's Northern Lights project team and the suppliers will work in the project office,' says project director Sverre Overa.

The contract is subject to final government approval of the Langskip project. The agreements aim to ensure progress as planned for the Northern Lights onshore facilities in the event of project approval.

The CO2 receiving terminal will be located at the premises of Naturgassparken industrial area in the municipality of Oygarden in Western Norway. The plant will be remotely operated from Equinor's facilities at the Sture terminal in Oygarden.

The plant is designed to store 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year, consisting of storage tanks for intermediate storage, an import quay, unloading equipment, injection pumps and equipment, in addition to administration buildings.

Worth about NOK 380 million, the contract with Skanska includes: The establishment of a site, road and infrastructure for the terminal.

The construction of an administration building, in addition to warehouse and workshop buildings.

The construction of a jetty.

The establishment of an exit road to Naturgassparken from country road 561.

'We are pleased to award the first big contract in the project. Skanska is a solid national and regional player that we have worked successfully with before. This contract demonstrates that the Northern Lights development will contribute with activity and new opportunities for regional and local industry,' says Peggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor's chief procurement officer.

The work will mainly be headed by Skanska's Bergen department. Skanska estimates that the project will involve between 100 - 150 man-years of work for Skanska and the partners.

Preparations will start after the contract signing. The preparation of the building site is scheduled to start in January 2021, subject to final government approval of the Langskip project.

Equinor will also sign a contract with CCB Kollsnes for the hire of office trailers and storage areas totalling about 16,000 m2.

The lease agreement will run until the summer of 2024, when the terminal and administration building have been completed.

Earlier this year Equinor, Shell and Total decided to invest in the Northern Lights project, the initial investments totalling almost NOK 6.9 billion.

Norwegian employment effects in the development phase of Northern Lights are estimated at more than 2,100 man-years. Regionally, the employment effect in the development phase totals more than 250 man-years.

Sharing data from Northern Lights well (19 Oct 2020)


The Northern Lights project is part of the Norwegian full-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project 'Langskip (Longship),' supported by the Norwegian government. The project will initially include capture of CO2 from Norwegian industrial capture sources. The Northern Lights project comprises transportation, receipt and permanent storage of CO2 in a reservoir in the northern North Sea.

Initially, Northern Lights includes capacity to transport, inject and store up to 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. Once the CO2 is captured onshore, it will be transported by ships, injected and permanently stored 2,600 meters below the seabed of the North Sea.

The facilities are scheduled to be operational in 2024.

The CO2 receiving terminal will be located at the premises of Naturgassparken industrial area in the municipality of Oygarden in Western Norway.

The plant will be operated from Equinor'sfacilities at the Sture terminal in Oygarden.

Exploitation licence EL001 'Aurora' was awarded in January 2019.

The geological storage complex is located 2,600 meters below the seabed.

In March 2020 the Eos confirmation well was successfully drilled completed.
