German-Norwegian energy cooperation

In January 22, bilateral discussions started between Germany and Norway to strengthen and further develop the countries' 40-year history of energy cooperation.

The work focus on the energy transformation and the countries have agreed to carry out a joint feasibility study of large-scale hydrogen production in Norway and transport and distribution to consumers in Germany (ref model above).    


Gassco has been asked to lead the Norwegian part of this joint feasibility study, together with our German partner DENA. The purpose of the study is to verify whether a hydrogen value chain from Norway to Germany is feasible both technically and commercially. The premise of the feasibility study is that the work is carried out by the industry and for the industry, based on real projects in all parts of the value chain. The work in this phase is planned to be completed by the summer of 2023, with potential start-up in 2030.
