Northern Lights: a groundbreaking project for capture and storage of CO₂ 

Equinor, Shell and Total have decided to invest in the Northern Lights project in Norway’s first exploitation licence for CO₂ storage on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Plans for development and operation have been submitted to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. 


The Northern Lights project is part of the Norwegian full-scale CCS project, which involves capture of CO2 from industrial  sources in the Oslofjord region and shipping of liquid CO2 via ship and pipeline to an offshore storage location subsea in the North Sea, for permanent storage. 

Our contribution to combating Covid-19

Now, more than ever, safety and caring for people comes first. In Equinor, health and safety are always our top priority — but the magnitude of the corona crisis calls for a broader contribution. That’s why we have made donations to leading organisations.

How do we make a 253-metre high wind turbine float?

We travelled offshore with two of the engineers behind Hywind Scotland – the world’s first offshore floating wind farm. Find out how we make these tall, cylindrical turbines float vertically in the water – and the Norwegian offshore expertise that lies behind this technology. 

With a little help from my digital twin

How can we improve safety and efficiency, reduce rework and connect our on and offshore workers? Digital tools like Echo, HoloLens and Omnia cloud are transforming our working days and taking platform construction into the digital age. Discover more here.

Sniffing for methane emissions in the USA using SeekOps drones

Methane is the second most important greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Now we’re using drones equipped with laser sensors to detect methane emissions from our production sites. Find out more about how we’re reducing methane emissions in the USA.
