The webinar will outline:

  • Solutions and strategies for operators to reduce both the cost and environmental footprint of their offshore facilities
  • How operators meet the challenges placed by the new IMO rules coming into effect in 2020 with state of the art DC/AC power solutions and energy storage support 
  • The use of ESS and the potential for integrating battery-powered solutions with offshore O&G installations
  • A case history on the use of lithium ion, battery-powered E-ferries, which have the potential to reduce annual CO2 emissions from domestic shipping and commercial fishing off the coast of Norway

Nearly four years into a ‘lower-for-longer’ price environment, offshore operators continue to develop and implement the means to effectively navigate the new normal. Cost constraints, however, are not the only driver behind innovation. The long-term sustainability of the industry is also predicated on minimizing the environmental impact of O&G operations, particularly in the offshore environment. One strategy that is showing promise for helping to achieve that is the integration of renewable technology (i.e. wind) and energy storage solutions (ESS) to reliably power offshore O&G facilities.

As many parallels can be drawn from the design and construction of the ferries to other marine vessels and facilities, the case history serves as a partial proof of concept for incorporating ESS with power generation in the O&G environment. Doing so can help drill rig and vessel operators significantly reduce emissions and enhance safety in their operations.

The first of the Siemens Webinar Series is not to be missed.
