Side events CLIMIT SUMMIT 2023
We will be kicking off with hree different side events on 7 February including three on the morning of 8 February, while the CLIMIT SUMMIT will get under way at lunchtime on 8 February.
7 February from 12:30-14:00 CO2DataShare/NCCS
CO2Datashare is an open digital portal for sharing data from CCS projects. The goal is to promote international sharing of unique reference data from current and emerging CCS projects. It enables users all over the world to have access to curated and well-documented datasets to fast-track the development of CCS technology. This side-event facilitated by the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) will address the value of sharing research and industry data through CO2DataShare and discuss opportunities and challenges related to data sharing.

7 February from 12:30-14:00 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM)
Welcome to our presentatiton of the business of Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) during the CLIMIT Summit 2023. Since the start in 2023, we have helped technology developers from large parts of the world with testing and verification of technologies capturing CO2. In addition, in collaboration with several research institutions, we have carried out open, non-proorietary test campaigns which have contributed to expanding the knowledge base for capturing and storing CO2 on a full scale.
Our claim is that TCM has been absolutely crucial for carbon capture and storage in recent years to have progressed from theory to actually becoming an important and necessary tool for the world to achieve its climate goals. The two technologies that have been chosen for the capture facilities in the Norwegian Longship project, Heidelberg Materials’s cement factory in Brevik and Hafslund Oslo Celsio, have both been the subject of thorough testing at TCM. The result is technologies that lay the foundation for cost-effective capture of CO2.
TCM’s journey as an arena and supporter for the further development of both mature and testing completely new capture technologies continues in 2023. We look forward to telling you more when meeting in Larvik on Tuesday 7 February!
- Introduction to Technology Centre Mongstad
- Role of TCM in commercialization of Carbon Capture Technologies
- How can TCM support projects with its advisory services
- How can TCM support testing and upscaling with its unique facilities and competence
- TCM activities in pipeline-àway forward
- QA & mingling
7 Februar from 14:30-17:30 ECO2S
Southern States Energy Board (SSEB) invites you to the side event: ECO2S – building a commercial CCS project onshore in the U.S
The Southern States Energy Board (SSEB) leads a coalition of universities and subject matter experts establishing a commercial-scale (900 million metric tons of capacity) CO2 Storage Complex adjacent to Mississippi Power Company’s Kemper County energy facility.
Project ECO2S, or “Establishing an Early CO2 Storage Complex in Kemper County, Mississippi,” is part of a larger, multiphase effort by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) known as the Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) Initiative, which focuses on the development of geologic sites for the storage of 50+ million metric tons of CO2 from industrial sources. The selected research projects will improve understanding of project screening, site selection, characterization, and baseline monitoring, verification, accounting, and assessment procedures, as well as the information necessary to submit appropriate permits and design injection and monitoring strategies for commercial-scale projects.
Project ECO2S has completed the characterization phase of the effort and begun the process of obtaining necessary permits. Join us as consortium partners from the U.S. and Europe share experiences and observations made during this phase, including feedback from the permitting authority (U.S. EPA), within the perspective of European efforts.
- Welcome | An Introduction to CarbonSAFE & the Workshop: Patti Berry, SSEB
- Keynote: Mark Ackiewicz, S. DOE
- Characterizing a Large-scale Commercial Site for CarbonSAFE: Dave Riestenberg, Advanced Resources International (ARI)
- Building the Permit for the 1st Carbon Storage Hub in the US: George Koperna, ARI
- Regulatory Donut Holes: Ingvild Ombudstvedt, IOM Law
- Chair: Patti Berry
- Risk — A Phased Approach: Brian Hill, Crescent Resource Innovation
- Pipeline and Surface Facility Design Considerations: Katherine Dombrowski, Trimeric
- Onshore v. Offshore Storage: Niels Peter Christensen, Christensen CCS Consult
Following the sessions, we invite you to an exclusive networking event where you may continue the discussion with speakers and participants.
The project owner of the Kemper venture, Richard Esposito from Southern Company, will share his observations on the development of commercial CCUS projects in the U.S. First come, first served!
Networking event sponsored by:
8 February from 10:00-11:00 ACT
ACT is an international funding scheme for RD&D projects within CCUS. Many ACT projects have provided significant technology improvements and the next step is now to ensure fruitful dissemination and knowledge sharing. This side event will be a workshop to define the best strategies for bridging the ACT results with a wider deployment of CCS.

8 February from 09:00-10:00 ECCSEL ERIC
Research infrastructure to support CCS and CCU solutions of tomorrow
ECCSEL ERIC hereby invites to a one-hour session on future needs within CCS and CCU (CCUS) research infrastructure in Norway. Part 1 of the session will present status for CCUS research infrastructure in Norway today, both within and outside ECCSEL ERIC. Planned upgrades and new builds based on identified needs from academia and industry will be outlined.
In part 2 of the session, we invite the participants to give their viewpoints on future needs for CCUS research infrastructure in Norway. This will be seen in connection with already existing plans for development of the Norwegian research infrastructure (within ECCSEL ERIC). An interactive session where the results will be presented within the framework of ECCSEL ERIC.
09:00 – 09:30 ECCSEL ERIC and the Norwegian ECCSEL node: Presentation of the list of existing ECCSEL research facilities, approved upgrades of existing research facilities, and construction of new ones
09:30 – 10:00 Presentation of the ECCSEL ERIC Infrastructure Development Plan and time for discussion (by SINTEF)
8 February from 09:00-11:00 Mission Innovation – CDR
Gassnova has the pleasure of inviting to a two hours event on the Mission Innovation (MI) Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) mission during the CLIMIT Summit 2023. MI is a ministerial level initiative. CDR is one of seven missions and has four technical tracks:1) Direct Air Capture (DAC); 2) Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage (BiCRS); 3) Enhanced mineralization; and 4) Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Techno-Economic Analysis (TEA). Gassnova is co-leading the BiCRS track with Japan. MI CDR has prepared an Innovation Roadmap and an Action Plan.
The event will cover an overview of MI CDR, with emphasis on the BiCRS track. Norwegian industry will share thoughts on how biogenic carbon may replace fossil carbon, thereby contributing to negative emissions, and R&D organisations will have the opportunity to present possible technical solutions. Sustainable use of biomass and monitoring, accounting, and crediting of negative emissions are topics central to CDR and will be highlighted.
PURPOSE: Inspire to engage in international cooperation within CDR with focus on Biomass Carbon Dioxide Removal and Storage (BiCRS) in Norway.
Welcome by Gassnova and Moderator (Camilla Brox, CEO Brox Consulting)
