This week, we are excited to feature an op-ed written by Chris Davies, director of CCS Europe, as part of the #CCS4NetZeroIndustry initiative. In the article, Chris debunks claims that question the reliability of long-term CO2 storage, emphasising the importance of understanding its safety. 

Chris highlights the remarkable success of Norway’s Sleipner and Snohvit fields, where more than 20Mt of CO2 have been stored without any reported incidents of leakage. These real-world examples demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of CO2 storage.
