Section last changed: 25 February 2020

The provision elaborates Section 4-5 on plan for development and operation of a subsea reservoir for injection and storage of CO2 and 6-1 on specific licence to install and to operate facilities of the Regulations relating to storage and transport of CO2 on the shelf, by imposing supplementary requirements on the documents that are related to safety and working environment, and which are to follow the plans. The provision is harmonized with corresponding documentation provisions in Sections 4-6 and 6-2 of the Regulations relating to storage and transport of CO2 on the shelf. Among other things, these provisions explicitly state that the documentation shall be adapted to the development or the scope of the project. Guidelines for plan for development and operation of a petroleum deposit (PDO) and plan for installation and operation of facilities for transport and utilisation of petroleum (PIO) can be used as far as is appropriate.
By existing wells is meant wells that are in use and temporarily or permanently abandoned wells. By storage complex is meant storage location and the geological environment that may have an impact on the safety of storage.
To assess the well barriers to existing wells when storing CO2, DNVGL-RP-J203 Section 7 and ISO 27914 Chapter 7.6 should be used.
For other comments on the provision, reference is made to the guidelines for Section 27 of the Framework Regulations.
