Timeline for electrification of North Sea oil installations

Statoil recommends a timeline for joint power supply from land to the Edvard Grieg, Ivar Aasen, Johan Sverdrup and Dagny fields in the North Sea.

The Norwegian energy provider says it will start power deliveries to this area of the Utsira High in the North Sea from 2018.

The timeline will make it possible to study the optimal location of a distribution platform for power, and provides a better basis for final design in relation to planning for Johan Sverdrup, which will be the field with the greatest need for power.

The study of the electrification solution for Edvard Grieg, Ivar Aasen and Dagny started in 2010. The discovery of Johan Sverdrup changed the terms, and the study for new fields on the Utsira High, was continued in 2011.

The study was initiated by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and is led by Statoil, together with operators Lundin and Det norske oljeselskap, along with the other licensees.

The study of a joint solution is based on the needs of four field developments and it is the first time such an area solution is studied on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The Utsira High may be well-suited for electrification due to the large power need, favorable distances and water depths. Preliminary estimates place the power need for the four fields at around 250-300 MW.
