40pc of Offshore Norway Output Electrified by 2025
Forty-percent of Norway’s offshore oil and gas production will come from electrified platforms by 2025, according to Rystad Energy’s latest forecast.
A further five percent of production will be partly-electrified and 55 percent will be non-electrified production, the independent oil and gas research and business intelligence company projected.
Back in 2010, 25 percent of Norway’s offshore oil and gas output was electrified, with one percent partly electrified and 74 percent non-electrified, Rystad revealed. In 2018, Norway’s offshore oil and gas production was 30 percent electrified, Rystad highlighted.
“Norway has over the years taken several steps to reduce its upstream emissions through electrifying offshore platforms, reducing flaring volumes, installing carbon capture and storage and other energy efficiency measures,” Rystad said in a company statement.
“Power from shore to offshore platforms already started in 1996 when Troll East (A) came on-stream, with the Johan Sverdrup field as the latest addition in 2019,” Rystad added.
Rystad outlined that the Martin Linge and Snohvit phase two developments will be fully electrified at start-up in 2020, as will Edvard Grieg, Ivar Aasen and Gina Krog in 2022. Snorre and Gullfaks will be partly electrified from the Hywind Tampen floating wind-park from 2022, Rystad noted.
Rystad provides data, tools, analytics and consultancy services to the global energy industry. The company’s headquarters are located in Oslo, Norway.
