Mongstad carbon dioxide test center opens

By OGJ editors

The Technology Center Mongstad, built to test technologies for capturing carbon dioxide from post-combustion gases, has been inaugurated near Bergan, Norway (OGJ Online, Nov. 10, 2011).

A joint venture of the Norwegian government’s Gassnova, Statoil, Sasol, and Shell, the center has an amine plant built by Aker Solutions and a chilled ammonia plant built by Alstom.

The demonstration plants will be fed flue gas from a combined heat and power plant and off-gas from a catalytic cracker at Statoil’s 203,000 b/d Mongstad refinery (OGJ, May 23, 2011, p. 14).
