From 2022 the Johan Sverdrup area will provide the Gina Krog, Ivar Aasen and Edvard Grieg fields on the Utsira High, with energy from shore. The space’s licence companions have lately agreed on maximizing the utilization of energy from shore to the realm by enabling partial electrification of the Sleipner area centre as nicely. The total space resolution will contribute to a median discount in CO? emissions near 1.2 million tonnes of CO? per 12 months.
“The Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) is main in producing oil and gasoline with low greenhouse gasoline emissions. By enabling partial electrification of Sleipner and tie-in fields, we’re making most utilization of the realm resolution for energy from shore to the Utsira High to additional cut back emissions from the NCS,” says Anders Opedal, govt vp for Technology, tasks & drilling in Equinor.
The unique space resolution for energy from shore to the Utsira High contains the Johan Sverdrup, Edvard Grieg, Gina Krog and Ivar Aasen fields. The energy from shore resolution included within the second part of the Johan Sverdrup growth will present extra capability of 35 MW to be able to meet elevated energy demand from present or extra fields sooner or later.
Based on the results of latest negotiations by the licence companions, the Sleipner area centre, along with the Gudrun platform and different tie-ins, will obtain energy from shore to satisfy components of their energy demand. This resolution may also make sure that the Lundin Norway-operated Edvard Grieg platform will be capable of totally meet its energy demand by energy from shore.
Emission reductions based mostly on the Utsira High space resolution are estimated at greater than 1 million tonnes of CO? on common per 12 months.
