Floating wind turbine technology is well placed to help oil and gas operators reduce the cost of recovery from reservoirs using water injection, according to an industry expert. A new joint industry project - Win Win - being led by DNV GL, has brought together oil majors including ExxonMobil, ENI, Statoil, Nexen and VNG to share knowledge and pursue water injection in subsea reservoirs delivered by wind-power rather than traditional gas turbines. The technology is seen as being cost-efficient, able to reduce an oil platform's carbon footprint and offers opportunities for one turbine to be used on multiple wells.
The concept of using wind power for offshore oil and gas applications has taken a step forward after several oil majors signed up for a joint industry project to explore the technology.

The North Sea oil and gas industry was warned not to “waste a crisis” as consultants urged firms to adopt cost cutting measures. Risk management from DNV GL expects that the region’s oul and gas industry won’t be “trending positive” again until 2017, while demand for rigs won’t do so until 2018. Nevertheless, DNV GL’s Liv Hovam, director of divisional Europe and Africa, oil & gas, underlined a number of projects the consultancy firm has been undertaking which can save tens of millions of costs for firms in the North Sea -a basin which has experienced the highest cost inflation in the world in recent years.
