PGNiG takes part in electrification of Norwegian fields to reduce CO2 emissions
Natural gas that is used to supply power to the Gina Krog platform in the North Sea will be replaced by electricity. Gas consumption for own needs in the Skarv field will also decrease. This is one of the ways in which oil companies operating on the Norwegian Continental Shelf want to reduce emissions associated with hydrocarbon production. PGNiG Upstream Norway is involved in the project.

The purpose of the Power-from-Shore project is to connect the production infrastructure located in the North Sea with subsea cables to power supply from the Norwegian onshore power grid. The project is run by Norway’s Equinor and its partners, including PGNiG Upstream Norway.

“Together with our licence partners, we are involved in a project that will bring the Norwegian Continental Shelf closer to achieving the goal of zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This is a vital project for companies engaged in exploration and production operations on the shelf. In addition to environmental benefits, these efforts will translate into lower emission charges and will thus improve the economics of the fields,” said Jerzy Kwieciński, President of the PGNiG Management Board.

PGNiG Upstream Norway, PGNiG’s Norwegian subsidiary, holds an 11.3% interest in the Gina Krog field. In May this year, a high voltage power cable was laid between the Gina Krog platform and the Sleipner production complex, located about 30 km away. By the end of 2022, the platforms and the shore will be connected with more kilometres of power cable. In addition, the shut-down of a gas turbine in the Skarv field will reduce CO2 emissions from the field’s infrastructure by nearly 70 thousand tonnes per year, i.e. by 20%. From 2024 onwards, it will be possible to generate heat and electricity from exhaust gases from the local gas turbine, which will help reduce energy consumption and decrease emissions by another 30%.

PGNiG has been active in Norway since 2007. PGNiG Upstream Norway currently holds interests in 31 exploration and production licences on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The company is producing oil and gas from seven fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Production from Skogul and Ærfugl has started this year.
