With governments across the world committing to ambitious decarbonisation targets, the role of carbon capture, utilisation & storage is becoming increasingly important in achieving net-zero by 2050.

Join us as our two expert panellists discuss:

  • How and why carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) could play a significant role in the decarbonisation process
  • The ways in which public, private, non-profit and academic organisations can collaborate to accelerate the roll-out of carbon sequestration and green technology
  • The challenges and successes of existing CCUS infrastructure and projects, and what the lessons that can be gleamed from real-world examples are

Speakers include:

  • Torbjørg Klara Fossum

    Low Carbon Solutions Lead

    Equinor

    Torbjørg Klara Fossum, graduated with an MSc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Trondheim before joining Equinor (formerly Statoil) in 1997. Her experience includes positions within management, major projects and strategy and technology development. She is currently heading up Equinor’s strategic research and technology portfolio within Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), and is representing Equinor’s unique capability and experience within the field, which is based on more than 20 years of operations from the only two existing full-scale CCUS projects in Europe (Sleipner and Snøhvit). The research and technology portfolio is shaped to support the scale-up of the Northern Lights project, which is part of the Norwegian full scale CCS project heading an investment decision this year, and which aims to be the first step in developing a cross border European CO2 transport and storage network that can help Norwegian and European industry to de-carbonise.
