Norwegian field to be partly electrified to cut emissions

Equinor has submitted plans to partly electrify the Sleipner field with the aim to cut emission on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The electrification of the Sleipner field centre will entail laying a new power cable from Sleipner to the Gina Krog platform, which will be tied into the area solution for power from shore on the Utsira High. During periods when the power need is greater than the capacity in the area solution, Sleipner will use gas turbines, like they do t... more
