Sleipner gas field - Definition, glossary, details

Sleipner field is one of the largest natural gas producers in the North Sea. The natural gas produced from the field contains up to 9% CO2. A large amount of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere while natural gas is extracted. In order to meet the nation’s emission reduction targets, statoil, a Norwegian oil and gas producer adopted a saline aquifer storage strategy for Sleipner field. The carbon dioxide produced is injected into the Utsira formations which are some 800 meters below the bed of North Sea. The Statoil-operated Sleipner Field in the North Sea is the first case of industrial scale CO2 storage project in the world.
