Johan Sverdrup is one of the five largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf. (Illustration: Statoil)
The field will be operated by electrical power generated onshore, reducing offshore emissions of climate gases by 80% - 90% compared to a standard development utilizing gas turbines on the NCS. With Statoil’s focus on reducing emissions, the modern PARAT Electrode Boiler with efficiency of 99,5% will contribute significantly to the electrification of Johan Sverdrup.
Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 will be supplied by renewable power from Haugsneset on the Norwegian mainland. The DC power will be transformed to AC on the P2 module and distributed to the consumers. A main consumer is the electrical boilers generating the heat for the Heating medium system. The Electrode boilers will be operating on the 11 kV busbar.
The complete skid mounted heating central with 2 X 12MW PARAT Electrode Hot Water Boilers and equipment will be delivered to Johan Sverdrup Phase 2. (Illustration: PARAT)
The PARAT boiler design is based on more than 25 year’s experience with the boiler type, 12 year’s experience with the boiler in FPSO operation, and state of the art gained from more than 400 MW deliveries to European Power plants, chemical- and process industry.
The delivery from PARAT will be a complete skid mounted heating central with boilers, pumps, water treatment, heat exchangers and control system. Together with the client we have found good and safe solutions for access, operation and maintenance.
Johan Sverdrup - the North Sea giant
Johan Sverdrup is one of the five largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf. With expected resources of between 2.1—3.1 billion barrels of oil equivalents, it will also be one of the most important industrial projects in Norway in the next 50 years. The development and operation of this enormous field will generate revenue and provide jobs for coming generations.
Contracts worth more than NOK 60 billion have been awarded in connection with the Phase One development, with 70% of the total number of contracts awarded to Norwegian suppliers. During the period 2016-2018, the main construction phase of the project, more than 12000 people every day around the world will contribute to Johan Sverdrup.
