Register NOW for our next Lunchtime Webinar - Wednesday 20th October 2021
12 October 2021
We are pleased to confirm our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar 'Safety Barriers for Large-Scale Transport and Storage of CO2 for Permanent Geological Storage - Experience from The Northern Lights Project' presented by Sandra Hennie Nilsen from Equinor on Wednesday 20th October 2021 at 13.00 BST.
For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.
The Northern Lights JV DA is developing an open and flexible infrastructure for the transport of CO2 from industrial emitters by ship to a terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, before being transported by pipeline for permanent storage in a reservoir 2,600 meters under the seabed. The transport and storage facilities will offer safe and permanent underground storage to industries from across Europe. The project is the transport and storage component of Longship, the Norwegian Government’s full-scale carbon capture and storage project. Northern Lights will be the first ever cross-border, open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure network. Phase one of the project will be completed mid-2024 with a design capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. The facilities will be operated by the Northern Lights JV, a Joint Venture owned by Equinor, Shell and TotalEnergies.
Risks are mainly related to large releases of cold pressurized liquefied CO2. CO2 is neither flammable nor explosive. This webinar will focus on the following subjects
- Presentation of the Northern Lights project;
- CO2 hazards;
- Central safety authority regulations;
- Results from safety risk analysis onshore and offshore. Main focus will be on the onshore facilities;
- Safety barriers in design.
FABIG WEBINAR SERIES
We are continuing to organise lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings.
We are looking for presentations covering topics relevant to the following themes:
- Robust Principles for Safe Design against Fires & Explosions based on Experience;
- Fire and Explosion Hazards from Low Carbon Energy Sources
As such, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a relevant presentation.
Take care and stay safe,
