Recommends electric boiler on the Edvard Grieg platform
Lundin Norway’s recommendation to the other licensees in the Edvard Grieg field is to cover all heat and power needed to operate the platform by electricity from shore when the area-wide solution for power from shore for fields on the Utsira High in the North Sea is in place by 2022.
Through the downturn in the industry, Lundin Norway has continued to invest in its employee base. More than 30 percent of the current workforce has in fact been recruited in the period after oil prices started to fall in 2014. This has been made possible by our long-term strategy to secure sustainable growth.
Lundin Norway is among the companies with lowest production costs on the Norwegian shelf. No other company had lower costs per barrel produced in 2017. So far this year, we have improved our own record by more than 17%.
