The DNV GL-led joint industry project WIN WIN (WINd powered Water INjection) has completed its first phase and determined that wind power could be used to power offshore water injection.

The project is moving into the second phase, which includes refining and testing the electrical systems and investigating possibilities for broader applications.

The project has four partners: DNV GL, Exxon Mobil, ENI Norge and the Norwegian Research Council.

It proves that large-scale renewable units can be integrated into oil and gas systems, which lowers carbon emissions, as well as equipment and operations costs for oil companies.
