Operational improvements and step change solutions
The Oil & Gas sector is facing challenges to commit to emission reductions starting with 10% by 2025, 50% by 2030 and 90% by 2040. There is a gap between what is currently technically feasible and what is commercially feasible to deliver this ambition.
It starts with small steps. The opportunity to introduce relevant proven technology from other sectors that may be adapted for Oil & Gas use.
The time taken to achieve emission reductions from operational improvements reductions is shorter (perhaps one to two years) than from step-change actions which require much longer to define, develop and implement solutions (greater than five years) as these are large and more complex projects. Wärtsilä is there as part of your decarbonization journey. Starting with advice on what it is you can immediately do yourself and support you to meet your operational goals.

Jack-up lift vesselWärtsilä has been awarded the contract to provide the design for a new jack-up lift vessel. Wärtsilä Ship Design has considerable experience in designing offshore and specialised vessels, and its selection for the design of a new, next generation, lift vessel is considered an acknowledgement of the company’s strong track record.

Petrojarl Cidade de Rio Das Ostras FPSOThe Petrojarl Cidade de Rio das Ostras was converted into a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in 2007. This former tanker is now capable of processing up to 15,000 barrels a day. Currently, it is producing oil from the Siri reservoir, some 85 kilometres off the Brazilian coast.
