Electrification for a Sustainable Offshore Industry: Part I

Thursday 5 May
610
Technical / Poster Session
Sustainability targets, environmental regulatory pressures, the Paris agreement, and market realities have all inspired the oil and gas industry to look for more energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective solutions for its mature basins as well as new, remote, and deep-water frontiers. Several developments and projects have been executed or are on-going for offshore electrification of systems implementing Clean Energy, both subsea and topsides, with an end goal to support this ambition. Electrification requires an efficient solution to convert electric power transmitted to the field into mechanical motion to operate components. Size, weight, power efficiency, cost and equipment availability play key factors in determining the outcome. Innovative approaches can be implemented for generating electricity via renewable sources for such systems. This session is intended for professionals who are interested in the ongoing and future electrification endeavors in the offshore industry. It presents papers with initiatives, lessons learned and case studies on technologies, challenges, and opportunities for utilizing electrification in subsea and topsides equipment to promote sustainability of this industry.
