Equinor To Reduce Emissions from Norwegian Offshore Natural Gas Hub With Onshore Electrification

The Sleipner field center, along with the Gudrun platform and other associated fields, is now partly operating on power from shore, according to Equinor. This will reduce annual emissions from the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) by 160,000 tonnes of CO2.

All installations on the Utsira High are now receiving power from shore, saving emissions amounting to about 1.2 million tonnes of CO₂ per year. The electrification of the installations on the Utsira High is in line with the plan for development and operation (PDO) for Johan Sverdrup phase 2, which was approved by the Norwegian parliament in 2019.
