delivered the world’s first subsea gas compression system to Equinor’s Åsgard field in 2015. 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

Huge Opportunities in Norwegian Shelf

already been discovered. 85 per cent are located in the fields and 15 per cent are located in discoveries that are being considered for development.There is also a potential that even more proven oil and gas could become profitable to produce by applying new technology and knowledge, it said.When Johan Sverdrup and Skogul come on stream this autumn, there will be 88 producing fields on the shelf. 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.

NKT to Supply Shore Power Cables for Equinor

NKT has been awarded the turnkey project from Equinor for the 132 kV high-voltage cable connecting the oil and gas platforms Johan Sverdrup 2 and Gina Krog.Equinor has selected NKT as the turnkey supplier for the high-voltage cable project connecting the Norwegian offshore platforms in the North Sea. The order has a value of approximately €29 million in market prices (approximately €25 million in std. metal prices) and comprises supply and installation of 62 kilometers of a 132 kV AC XLPE high-voltage power cable solution.Connecting the platforms allows Equinor to power Gina Krog from shore
