Equinor taps Aker Solutions for electrification work in field offshore Norway

Norwegian oil and gas company Equinor ASA granted Aker Solutions ASA a front-end engineering design contract to enable power from shore to two platforms in the Troll field offshore Norway to reduce CO2 and nitrogen oxide emissions.

"The main driver in the electrification project is to reduce CO2 and [nitrogen oxide] emissions from the Troll B and Troll C platforms by using electrical power from Kollsnes and replacing the existing gas turbine driven electricity generators and gas compressors with electrical equipment," Equinor Senior Vice President for Project Development Geir Tungesvik said in a Jan. 15 release.

The company expected CO2 reductions to come in at 450,000 tonnes per year after the project is completed. The move came after Equinor recently announced that it will try to decrease the greenhouse gas emissions from its offshore fields and onshore facilities by 40% by 2030, 70% by 2040 and to "near zero" by 2050.

In a separate Jan. 15 release, Aker Solutions said it expects to deliver the front-end engineering design study for the Troll B and C platforms in the second half. The contract also includes an option for engineering, procurement, construction and installation work following the study's completion.

Financial details were not disclosed.

The Troll field, located 65 kilometers outside Bergen on Norway's west coast, contains 40% of the Norwegian continental shelf's gas reserves and is one of its largest oilfields.

Equinor operates the Troll field with a 30.58% stake. Other partners include Petoro AS, Royal Dutch Shell PLC unit A/S Norske Shell, Total SA subsidiary Total E&P Norge AS, and ConocoPhillips Co. unit ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS with stakes of 56%, 8.10%, 3.69% and 1.62%, respectively.
