Who we are

Northern Lights delivers carbon storage as a service. Our aim is to enable the decarbonisation of industrial emissions and to facilitate the removal of CO2 from the air.

We are the transport and storage component of Norway’s Longship project, which includes capture of CO2 from industrial point sources in the Oslo region. Northern Lights ships the CO2 to an onshore terminal on the Norwegian west coast and, from there, transports the liquefied CO2 by pipeline to a subsea storage location in the North Sea. It will also offer companies across Europe the opportunity to store their CO2 safely and permanently deep under the seabed in Norway.

When Northern Lights starts operations in 2024, it will be the first ever cross-border, open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure network.
