The EU Energy Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, has met with the Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Odd Roger Enoksen, to discuss ways of enhancing the development of carbon capture and storage technologies. Norway already has extensive experience in this area, and is working with industry on a project to capture and store CO2 emitted from the combined heat and power plant currently being built at the Mongstad refinery. This full scale facility will become operational in 2014. The EU intends to exchange experience with Norway, and concrete proposals will be presented during the next EU - Norway Energy Dialogue to be held in June 2007.
