Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 to Collaborate to Develop Carbon Capture & Storage Hub for Industrial Cluster in Norway
- Landmark project aims to capture and store up to 630,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually - including ~70% that are biogenic - from three main locations.
Borg CO2 and
Baker Hughesaim to progress plans for CO2 capture, liquefaction, and transportation on a waste-to-energy plant in Sarpsborg and develop plans for emitters in Fredrikstad using Baker Hughes’ technology.

The Borg CO2 project includes several industry partners, as well as the
Borg CO2 and its partners have completed a first feasibility study and are proceeding with an extended feasibility study (pre-FEED) to be completed by the end of 2021 which Baker Hughes will support with its portfolio of carbon capture technologies and engineering services for the study and development of the hub. In addition, Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 will jointly evaluate the optimal structure for implementation of the carbon capture plants and pursue grant and incentive opportunities both in
Borg CO2’s “industrial cluster” approach provides a prime opportunity for Baker Hughes to test and scale its wide-ranging carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies portfolio on several types of processes including its Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) and Compact Carbon Capture (CCC) solutions.
“Today, industrial clusters represent around 20% of Europe’s CO2 emissions. Meaningful decarbonization is not possible without carbon capture, utilization and storage, and this collaboration demonstrates how CCUS technology is accelerating from concept toward commercialization with real-world impact,” said
“With the technology competencies and experience of Baker Hughes supporting us, we believe that Borg CO2 is better positioned to take the next steps towards commercialization and achieve our goals for the project,” said Tore Lundestad, managing director of Borg CO2 and Harbour Master for the port of Borg. “A project like this showcases a win-win approach where permanent storage combined with the possibility of sustainable usage of smaller volumes of biogenic CO2 will help to achieve net-zero, and with the industrial facilities potentially receiving revenue by selling negative CO2 emissions”.
The Baker Hughes CCUS portfolio features advanced turbomachinery, solvent-based state-of-the-art capture processes, well construction and management for CO2 storage, and advanced digital monitoring solutions. Baker Hughes has a longstanding presence in
