A brand new gasoline module that was lately placed on stream on the Troll C platform will speed up and increase manufacturing from Fram by substantial worthwhile volumes.
Fram is an oil and gasoline area tied in to the Troll C platform. In 2017 the Fram companions determined to speculate about NOK 1 billion in a brand new gasoline module, boosting the gasoline processing capability on Troll C by a complete of three.5 million normal cubic metres per day. The choice was made in settlement with the Troll companions.
“The gasoline module accelerates gasoline manufacturing and capability within the Fram licence for present and new wells, including precious short-term worth. At the identical time the gasoline module permits new future discoveries to be tied in,” says Gunnar Nakken, senior vp, operations west.
The funding was important to additional creating Troll C as a hub for the realm.
“This is an thrilling space. On behalf of the Fram license we made one of many largest discoveries on the Norwegian continental shelf in 2019 right here, Echino South. In addition, a number of prospects are being thought of for drilling”, says Nakken.
The barely greater than 400-tonne gasoline processing module that includes gasoline drying and cooling models was constructed by Aibel in Haugesund, whereas Aibel in Bergen was chargeable for the engineering work. Overall some 300 individuals have been concerned within the challenge.
“The challenge had a vital employment impact in a interval of few new contract awards, and it was delivered with out critical incidents and on finances,” says Geir Tungesvik, Equinor’s senior vp for challenge growth.
The oil and gasoline business lately launched an ambition to cut back carbon emissions from the NCS to close zero by 2050, and on behalf of the Troll companions Equinor awarded a front-end engineering and design contract (FEED) for modifications of Troll B and Troll C to allow energy from shore.
The important objective of the electrification challenge is to cut back the emissions of CO2 and NOx from the Troll B and Troll C platforms, which may also scale back the local weather footprint from tied-in fields reminiscent of Fram.
Fram is an oil and gasoline area within the northern a part of the North Sea, some 20 kilometres north of Troll. The water depth within the space is roughly 350 metres.
The area consists of quite a few reservoirs and is developed with Fram West and Fram East each with two four slots templates every. Both are developed by two subsea templates tied again to Troll C.
The Fram nicely stream is transported by pipeline to Troll C for processing, and the oil is piped from there by the Troll II pipeline to Mongstad. The gasoline is exported by Troll A to Kollsnes.
