TCM at the world’s largest oil conference
If you’re in Houston, don’t miss the opportunity to have a virtual tour through the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) at booth 5041. TCM will also present its project at a Topical Luncheon on Tuesday and at a CCS conference on Thursday
- This conference is a very important meeting place for the Energy industry, and we are excited about this opportunity to tell so many about our groundbreaking carbon capture technology project, says managing director of TCM, Tore Amundsen.
Technology Centre Mongstad is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture. Knowledge gained will prepare the ground for CO2 capture initiatives to combat climate change.
Construction of TCM at the west coast of Norway is now more than 70 percent complete, and the first tests will start in the fourth quarter of this year.
At the booth, the visitors will have an opportunity to fly through an interactive 3D model of TCM with the help of a game controller. The interactive model includes the amine technology plant, provided by Aker Clean Carbon, and the chilled ammonia technology plant, provided by Alstom, that will be used as part of an extensive testing programme designed to understand different types of capture challenges.
In addition to the stand, Tore Amundsen will present TCM at a Topical Luncheon starting on Tuesday at 1215 at Reliant Center in Houston. Mr. Amundsen will also be one of the key speakers at the CCS conference organized by the Norwegian and Canadian consulates on Thursday morning. More than 200 people have so far signed up for this exciting event.
Founded in 1969, the Offshore Technology Conference is the world’s foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. OTC is held annually at Reliant Center in Houston.
Each year, OTC attracts more than 65,000 attendees and this year more than 2,500 exhibiting companies representing more than 110 countries are participating.
TCM is a joint venture between the Norwegian state, Statoil, Shell and Sasol.
