CO2-storage underground in Adventdalen

The idea to manage a »CO2-free« Spitsbergen in the not too far future has suffered several setbacks already, but is still being followed. So far, three research drillings to search for sandstone layers suitable for CO2-storage in depths of several hundred meters under terrain had to be abandoned because of technical problems. A fourth attempt will be started soon near the old airstrip in Adventdalen.

BThe next drilling will take place near the old northern light observatory in Adventdalen.
