Equinor has awarded Tenaris the supply of tubulars for the Northern Lights CO2 transport and storage facilities in Norway. From its Dalmine mill in Italy, Tenaris will produce 105km 12” Carbon Manganese (C-Mn) seamless line pipe for the milestone project.
“For this unique project, we leveraged our extensive track record, our technical capabilities and environmental commitment to support the project with line pipe products, contributing to the development of a value chain for Carbon Capture and Storage. Participation in an industry defining project such as Northern Lights marks an important forward step for Tenaris and its positioning and product development strategy for its energy transition agenda,” said Gregoire Flipo, Tenaris Line pipe & Process Commercial Vice President.
Northern Lights is responsible for developing and operating CO2 transport and storage facilities, open to third parties, as part of Longship, the Norwegian Government’s full-scale carbon capture and storage project. Equinor is responsible for delivering the facilities onshore and offshore as a technical service provider to Northern Lights JV.
Tenaris and Equinor are longstanding business partners, and within its framework agreement, the two companies will continue to collaborate on projects that promote shared values of sustainable, responsible development of energy resources.
