The Nordic CO2 storage atlas is produced by NORDICCS – the Nordic CCS Competence Centre. The NORDICCS project is funded by user/industry partners and the Top-level Research Initiative (TRI).

TRI is a joint effort on the part of the Nordic countries to find solutions to global climate challenges - the largest-ever Nordic venture of its kind. The funding consists of finances from the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Nordic countries, and the Nordic institutions NordForsk, Nordic Innovation and Nordic Energy Research.

Project duration: from November 2011 to November 2015.
