Preem CCS – A Pioneering Swedish-Norwegian Collaboration Showcasing the Full CCS Chain
Paper in proceeding, 2021

This paper presents an overview of the Preem CCS project, a co-funded Swedish-Norwegian R&D initiative. The project aims to demonstrate CO2 capture at Preem's refinery in Lysekil, Sweden and investigating the techno-economic and regulatory aspects of capturing CO2 at the refinery in Sweden and transporting the CO2 cross borders to Norway for final storage with the Northern Lights infrastructure. The Preem CCS project started in 2019 and is due to finish by the end of 2021.
