Article Type: Cited

The engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract for the new European CO2 test centre, to be established at StatoilHydro's Mongstad production plant on the west coast of Norway, has been awarded to Aibel.

Work has already started and the test centre is planned to be completed winter 2010/2011 with CO2 capture testing commencing spring 2011.

The Test Centre Mongstad (TCM) is the result of an agreement between the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and StatoilHydro, to establish a full scale CO2 capture and storage site.

The key objectives are to test, verify and demonstrate novel CO2 capture technologies for national as well as international application. Reducing financial, technical and environmental risk for later full scale applications of the tested technologies is another critical focus area.

The engineering work will be carried out at Aibel's offices at Billingstad outside Oslo. Fabrication at Mongstad is planned to take place from 2009.

Two CO2 capture technologies will be tested at the centre, and vendor contracts for these will be awarded separately.
