A barrier to effective large-scale deployment of CCS is the need for recognised standards and guidelines that can support the implementation of CCS in compliance with emerging regulatory frameworks. DNV is committed to closing this gap and developing guidelines for critical parts of the CCS value chain.

We have developed several widely adopted industry guidelines and recommended practices through joint projects with industry, and we continue to lead the development of further practices.

Faster together

Qualification procedures for carbon dioxide capture technology – DNV-RP-J201

Design and operation of carbon dioxide pipelines – DNV-RP-F104

Geological storage of carbon dioxide – DNV-RP-J203

Certification of sites and projects for geological storage of carbon dioxide – DNV-SE-0473

Industry guidance to manage challenges and potential hazards associated with handling CCS CO2 streams – CO2RISKMAN

Faster together
  • Energy Systems

Flow meter traceability along the CO2 value chain

Enabling CO2 flow metering performance assessments and qualification, building the world-first proven reference network of facilities for testing and calibration along the entire CO2 value chain.

  • Energy Systems

Hydrogen sulfide challenges in carbon dioxide pipelines

Investigating the integrity of carbon dioxide pipelines subjected to hydrogen sulfide from the carbon dioxide stream for carbon capture and storage applications.

  • Maritime

CO2 Efficient Transport via Ocean (CETO)

Reducing the risks and uncertainties related to the design, construction and operation of a low-pressure CO2 ship transport chain.

International CCS standards

DNV has worked with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to build and deliver three standards related to CCS activity:

  • Carbon dioxide capture: Performance evaluation methods for post-combustion CO2 capture integrated with a power plant – ISO 27919-1
  • Carbon dioxide capture, transportation and geological storage: Pipeline transportation system – ISO 27913 
  • Carbon dioxide capture, transportation and geological storage: Geological storage – ISO 27914
