The article reports on interest expressed by Star Energy in branching out into carbon storage. According to CEO Roland Wessel, carbon storage was a potential commercial opportunity for the firm. The CEO stressed that the 26 oil and gas producing fields of the company in Great Britain could be injected with carbon dioxide as they were depleted. Star Energy is also considering gas storage ventures in Denmark, Italy and the Netherlands as well as increasing its portfolio of onshore British gas schemes.
