"CCFN has become a key driver in the French-Norwegian cooperation in the Energy Business" - INTSOK

CCFN brought a Norwegian delegation to Pau.

Opening of the conference with Mr François Bayrou, Mayor of Pau and Jean-Louis Olivet, President of the Pôle Avenia.

The French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce brought a Norwegian delegation to Pau on the 6th, 7th and 8th of June in cooperation with INTSOK, Pôle Avenia, the French-Norwegian Foundation and the Norwegian Embassy. Norway was for the first time the official guest country of the annual event “Les Rendez-vous Geosciences” organised by Pôle Avenia.

In parallel to conferences and BtoB meetings, the CCFN organised a workshop on Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). 40 French and Norwegian top representatives from 25 companies and organizations of the whole value chain discussed the potential for cooperation: Gas users, CO2 emitters, Oil & Gas operators, Technology providers, State entities (French Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy), financial institutions and Service firms. This workshop is part of an ambitious Post Cop21 CO2 value chain project that the French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce has recently initiated.

The Norwegian delegation has also been received at the city hall of Pau.

The following day, on the 8th of June, Total main R&D Centre CFTSJ hosted the Norwegian delegation.

Statoil and Total presented their R&D programs and all Norwegian companies had the opportunity to pitch a selection of French potential partners, including experts from Total.

This first business trip to Pau was a success. Promising cooperation between companies has been initiated and we identified new opportunities to go further with this project.


We thank all our partners who helped us to set up a very rich program. INTSOK, the national agency promoting Norwegian Oil and Gas capabilities in international markets gave us a highly motivating feedback:We appreciate the fantastic support we get from the Norwegian – French Chamber of Commerce. They have become a key driver in the French –Norwegian cooperation in the Energy business. We wish them the best of luck with their CCS initiative.” Werner Karlsson, Regional Director Europe, Middle East and Engineering Hubs.
