Electrification of Production Systems for Mature Fields

September 15, 2022
As our industry transitions over the coming years toward fully decarbonized energy, we will be facing the imperative of answering the demand for conventional energy with new priorities on capital stewardship, increased productivity, and greater environmental sustainability. Investing billions of dollars in large new greenfield developments will become more and more difficult to justify. Operators will turn to their existing assets to connect additional resources and extract more oil and gas from them, with the priority on projects with low breakeven, low carbon, and short payback. Electrification of production systems will provide answers for this situation. But while operators fully understand the value of electrification for greenfield developments, its benefit for existing mature fields is less well known. This webcast will focus on the benefits of electrification for wells, subsea, and topside in brownfield applications. During this discussion, we will expand on the new capabilities enabled by electric systems that will help push existing frontiers. In addition, we will address some beliefs and myths and demonstrate that incremental investment costs for electrification of existing fields can return a large value while reducing the carbon footprint of our industry.
