Low-carbon oil production via hydropower

EQUINOR – Electrification enables low carbon oil extraction

Reducing the upstream carbon intensity of Equinor’s oil operations is a major component of its ambition to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Most offshore oil production is powered by CO₂-emitting gas turbines and on average, about 15 kg of CO2 were generated for each barrel of oil equivalent (boe) produced worldwide in 2021.
