means that the last piece of the puzzle to fully electrify Edvard Grieg is coming into place," Lundin Energy, the operator of the platform said Friday. The plan for electrification of the Edvard Grieg platform was announced in October 2019. The platform will be electrified together with the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project as part of the Utsira High Area power grid. Both heating and power needs will be met with power from shore by 2022. This will account for an annual emission reduction of around 200,000 tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of taking approximately 65,000 private cars off the road

extremely gratifying that the partners in the Sleipner licence have decided to further develop the field in line with our ambitious plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the NCS,” says Arne Sigve Nylund, Executive Vice President for Development & Production Norway.In October 2019, the Johan Sverdrup licence, together with the partners in Gina Krog, Ivar Aasen, Edvard Grieg and Sleipner with its tie-in fields, reached agreement on allocation of shore-based power from the Utsira High. Power from shore to the area solution is part of the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup development, and will

The company is currently involved in developing the first subsea gas compression project outside Norway, at the Jansz-Io field for Chevron in Australia.Low emission power from shore to Johan Sverdrup and Gina Krogh can generate CO2 emissions savings equivalent to removing 150,000 cars annually. Aker Solutions is involved in several studies for the electrification of fields

Never before have we had production from so many fields. In addition to this, the companies are exploring development opportunities for nearly 90 discoveries.Average discovery size has declined in recent years

NKT to Link Edvard Grieg to Johan Sverdrup

Power cables manufacturer NKT announced it has been awarded a contract to supply the high-voltage power cable that will connect the Edvard Grieg oil and gas production platform to the Johan Sverdrup field center in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.NKT said it was selected by Lundin Norway to supply 24 kilometers of 132 kV AC XLPE high-voltage power cable, expected to be commissioned in 2022.The connection of the two installations enables Lundin to benefit from the already planned power link in conjunction with phase 2 of the Johan Sverdrup development.
