SAIPEM to conduct extended concept study for Barents Blue project
The Barents Blue prOject will use natural gas from the Barents Sea to produce ammonia. It promises to provide Europe’s first large-scale clean ammonia production, located in Finnmark in Northern Norway. The project is a cooperation between Horisont Energi, Equinor, and Vår Energi.
The project partners decided to perform additional and extended concept studies to mature and optimise the ammonia factory further.
Previously, Horisont Energi said that concept studies for the project has been wrapped up. Now, Saipem and Haldor Topsoe will perform more detailed work over the next three to four months. This is to also provide valuable input into the impact assessment studies that are currently ongoing.
“Horisont Energi is committed to the Barents Blue project, which has the potential to be one of the most significant climate projects in Norway. This is a complex project, and Horisont Energi is putting substantial resources and project management experience into maturing the project in the best possible way,” says Bjørgulf Haukelidsæter Eidesen, CEO of Horisont Energi.
