This is the third time acreage is awarded to store CO2 pursuant to the Norwegian CO2 Storage Regulations, and the fourth acreage awarded to store CO2 on the Norwegian continental shelf.

CapeOmega is proud to have been awarded the licence and are looking forward to further maturing and developing the project together with Wintershall Dea Norge AS.
