2022 – progress and challenges

TotalEnergies EP Denmark’s operations are situated in the harsh environment of the North Sea and this sets the scene for our focus on safe and reliable operations.

Most of our offshore installations were constructed many years ago and were built for a significantly higher output of oil and gas. In this context, our goal is to operate our mature offshore installations in the safest, most energy efficient manner, with the lowest possible adverse impacts on air, sea and land, both locally and globally.

In 2022, we saw a high level of activity with significant major engineering projects being conducted, such as the redevelopment of Tyra as well as reducing the routine flaring from the oil from the Gorm field to the Dan field by 50%. These projects had major impacts on sustainability numbers.
