Clasen notes that Ørsted is banking on sending around 400,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide for containment in Norway’s Northern Lights project as a part of Denmark’s ongoing tender for carbon capture and storage infrastructure, which the utility expects to have in operation from Jan. 1, 2026, as required by the DEA.
