General – Barents Blue
Today operator Horisont Energi announced Fertiberia as a new partner to join the Barents Blue project.
The previous partners Equinor and Vår Energi leaves the project as the cooperation agreement expired on 31 January.
The Barents Blue concept is to make ammonia from natural gas from the Barents Sea, capture the CO2 and store it under the seabed.
The Polaris CO2 storage under the Barents Sea was selected as the CO2 storage solution for the Barents Blue project, and it has had the same partners as for the Barents Blue project.
Consequently, Equinor has also concluded to not take further part in the Polaris CO2 storage project.
Equinor remains positive to explore gas supply solutions from Hammerfest LNG to the Barents Blue project following the changes in the partnership.
