The war of words over carbon capture at the Mongstad gas power plant is far from over for Labour (Ap) Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

Leaders of a united four-party Opposition – Siv Jensen of the Progress Party (Frp), the Christian Democratic Party’s (Krf) Dagfinn Høybråten (KrF), Erna Solberg of the Conservative Party (H), and the Liberal Party’s (V) Trine Skei Grande – have written to Stoltenberg, demanding he accounts for his government’s decision to push back the start date to 2014.

“The government’s announcement of 01 May of a new and deferred schedule for full-scale CO2 capture at Mongstad violates what has previously been submitted and confirmed to Parliament. We therefore ask that the Prime Minister come to Parliament as soon as possible to explain the matter,” quotes NTB.

The Prime Minister’s Office has issued a press statement saying he intends to clarify the matter in connection with the revised national budget on 11 May.

But according to Aftenposten, he’s likely to have to answer during Parliamentary Question Time this Wednesday.
