French energy technology giant Schlumberger will deploy its Delfi cognitive E&P environment to optimise carbon transport and storage for the Northern Lights joint venture between Equinor, Shell, and TotalEnergies.

The Norwegian carbon capture and storage project will use the digital platform to streamline subsurface workflows and modelling and surveillance of carbon dioxide sequestration.

The project plans to eventually store up to 5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, based on market demand, with operations expected to begin in 2024.
