Equinor Seeks to Cut Emissions at Statfjord C

Equinor announced that it will replace two gas turbines with heat recovery to produce electric power at Statfjord C which will reduce its annual CO2 emissions by 95,000 tons.

The power will be produced from surplus heat from two gas compressors. According to the company’s statement, this cut 25% of the annual emission at the Statfjord C, equivalent to 50,000 cars.

The project is planned to start in 2026 and it will be the first time this solution is introduced on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). It also includes electrification of water injection and emission cuts related to other energy intensive processes on Statfjord C.

“This is the first time this solution is used on an operated field at the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). I am proud of employees and suppliers that have worked in an innovative way to streamline the energy being used at the platform. This is an important contribution to extend the field’s life to 2040,” says Camilla Salthe, Equinor’s senior vice president for Field Life eXtension (FLX).

“Heat recovery for electric power production has been used on new fields, both on the NCS and internationally. Now, for the first time, the solution is introduced on a mature field in production. This is possible due to the development of low-weight solutions,” says Ketil Rongved, Equinor’s vice president for FLX projects.
