In light of UN’s World Ocean Day, Equinor announced its ambitons for reducing its own emissions from ships and explained how the company will contribute to the industry’s decarbonization.
Equinor inked an agreement with Eidesvik Offshore concerning the modification of the Viking Energy supply vessel which will be fuelled by carbon-free ammonia and will transport supplies to installations on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).
The transition to a more sustainable energy system is too slow. A sustainable development path, consistent with the Paris Agreement target, does not allow for further delays in policy, industry and consumer action to reduce emissions, according to Equinor’s new Energy Perspectives report.
The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative and Brazil’s Petrobras announced that the Brazilian company will join the initiative. This commitment is subject to the approval of the OGCI Climate Investments Members’ Agreement by the Petrobras Board of Directors.
Statoil along with Masdar and Statkraft announced the official opening of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm in Great Yarmouth, UK, on November 22. All 67 turbines of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm are now delivering electricity to the UK grid.
Statoil signed a letter of intent with Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters in Singapore for the construction of the hull and integrated living quarters for a floating production, storage and offloading vessel.
The 79,350 acre site, secured by Statoil in a federal auction in December 2016, has the potential to generate up to 1GW of offshore wind power, making it a key part of New York State’s plan to deploy renewable energy sources to meet the state’s electricity needs.
Statoil, Shell and Total signed a partnership agreement to mature the development of carbon storage on the Norwegian continental shelf. The project is part of the Norwegian authorities’ efforts to develop full-scale carbon capture and storage in Norway.
Five wind turbines are slowly being towed out into the North Sea, during the summer, in order to create world’s first floating offshore wind farm. The first of the 11,500-tonne turbines has been already put in place at Buchan Deep, 15 miles off the north-east coast at Peterhead.
Statoil announced that it is focusing on reducing emissions from its activities. With an ambition of being leading in carbon-efficient oil and gas production, the company is awarding seven supply vessels a total contract value of NOK 3.1 billion, under which all vessels will be equipped with hybrid battery operation, and the possibility of shore power connection.
