LED lighting deal for oil field

Paul Boughton

Glamox AS has signed a framework agreement to supply the   for the Staoil's Johan Sverdrup Field Centre, one of the largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The Johan Sverdrup field is planned as a phased development, with a Field Centre and tie-backs of subsea templates and standalone well head platforms. The field is located on the Utsira Height in the North Sea, approximately 155km west of Stavanger and near to the fields of Grane, Ivar Aasen, Edvard Grieg and Sleipner.

Phase One of the project involves the establishment of a Field Centre comprising of four main bridge-linked platforms for living quarters (including utilities), a process platform, a drilling platform and a riser platform.

Future phases will include additional satellite platforms and/or subsea templates that will be connected to the Field Centre via subsea flowlines. The field will be operated by electrical power generated onshore. Oil will be exported via a dedicated pipeline to the Mongstad terminal in Hordaland. Production start-up is scheduled for the end of 2019.

Glamox will supply the complete LED lighting package, including LED light fixtures and LED floodlight fixtures for hazardous areas and for safe areas.

In addition, Glamox will supply a variety of LED lighting products for the living quarter and utility platform.  

Choice of LED technology provides significant operational benefits for Statoil and their partners, such as limited maintenance work, long lifetime and energy efficient solutions, reduced operational costs and improved environmental performance. Investment and operational analysis shows that a new LED lighting installation reduces carbon emissions and maintenance work significantly. The contract represents a milestone for offshore installations as the first fully equipped Field Development with LED technology.
