Sargas awards Tetra Strategy 'carbon capture' brief
Sargas is one of the world's leading firms in the field of 'carbon capture' and has charged Tetra with explaining the technology. Last month, Sargas and US energy giant General Electric announced they had created technology to enable them to sell gas-fired power plants that capture 90 per cent of their output of carbon dioxide. The power plants capture and store carbon pollution underground, which Sargas claims can provide significantly cheaper and cleaner energy without the need for government subsidies. The new technology will be used to build a commercial natural gas-fired power plant with carbon capture in Norway by 2016. The Sargas plant in the Fraena region on the north western coast of Norway plans to deliver electric power to the area's offshore oil and gas fields, which supply about 20 per cent of the UK's gas imports.
