AGR, the Norway-based well engineering, drilling project management and reservoir management firm, has signed an agreement to provide advisory services to Gassnova, in the area of carbon capture and storage.

The Norwegian state-owned Gassnova acts on behalf of the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and “facilitates the development of technology and solutions to enable cost-efficient and progressive solutions for the capture and storage of CO2”.

Under the agreement, AGR will act as technical advisors to Gassnova by offering technical expertise across geoscience, reservoir, drilling and well engineering disciplines, in addition to facilities and cost engineering.

Svein Sollund, chief executive officer of AGR, said: “As the Norwegian government actively progresses its carbon-neutral strategy, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a key method for tackling climate change and achieving low emissions targets.

At AGR, we have worked with the Gassnova team closely over many years, with the Longship full-scale project being the most recent example of that. We are therefore delighted to have been selected once again to support Gassnova and look forward to pooling our technical resources and expertise.”
