Old oil fields pose a challenge to Maersk Oil's CO2 emissions

North Sea gas- and oil production requires more and more energy, which poses a challenge to Maersk Oil's CO2 emissions. As a result, the company performs continuous improvements and invests in new equipment.

It requires more and more energy to reach the precious oil and gas in the North Sea, and it poses a long term challenge for Maersk Oil in its fight against CO2 emissions when drilling at sea. According to Maersk Oil, the company has managed to lower emissions by 20 percent in the last five years - a development that stopped in 2012, where emissions came in at the same level as in 2011, according to Maersk Oil's annual environmental report.

And the reason for this is the plain fact that the production requires more energy as the fields become older, says Mark Wallace, regional head of Maersk Oil in Denmark, to ShippingWatch.
