Knutsen and Larvik tapped to ship CO2

Norwegian state-run firm Gassco has commissioned Knutsen OAS Shipping and Larvik Shipping to study transport of CO2 by ship in connection with the Norwegian government’s investigations in how to handle the greenhouse gas.

“The transport study will help to ensure that the government’s ambition of realising at least one full-scale CO2 facility by 2020 can be met,” said Gassco CEO Frode Leversund. “Our long experience of leading complex industrial projects means we’re well equipped to develop a detailed basis for the government’s decision on continuing a CO2 management project.”
