WIN WIN is DNV GL’s concept for a new generation of oil recovery technology. Using a wind turbine to power a water injection system will reduce costs, increase flexibility, and reduce emissions. The project commenced in 2015 and culminated early in 2016. DNV GL managed the project and performed the technical and commercial assessments. JIP partners contributed with expert opinions, as well as possible use cases and operational data to assess the concept according to their needs.
The objective of the project has been to assess technical and economic feasibility of the WIN WIN concept for wind-powered water injection.
The WIN WIN concept has been assessed for technical and commercial feasibility. No technical showstoppers have been identified and wind-powered water injection is technically feasible, capable of meeting performance targets and may offer a cost-competitive alternative to conventional solutions.
