Wind to Power Oil and Gas Platforms

In their intention to cut emissions Atle Rygg Ardal, a researcher for SINTEF Energy Research of Norway, has proposed wind power as a solution for powering the offshore oil and gas platforms, writes Fuel fix.

Yesterday, at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston he presented a paper regarding this matter.

“If you removed the cost of emissions, then you will get a much worse economy from offshore wind,” Ardal said. “I think it is dependent on a carbon tax.”

By using around 30 pct of power from wind, platforms will be able to reduce gas consumption by more than 40 pct.

“You can actually substitute more fuel when you inject wind,” Ardal said. “This means that you are allowed to form a more optimized operation.”
