Norwegian Parliament's Energy and Environmental Committee has agreed that the entire so-called Utsirahøyde formation will be supplied with electricity from land. This should happen as quickly as possible, and by no later than 2022, said the committee after a meeting Wednesday night.

"We stress the importance of avoiding increased climate gas emissions while also creating safe conditions for future jobs in the Norwegian supply industry. As rapporteur on this matter, I have been constantly focused on bringing the committee together on this, and all parties have had a good dialog during the committee process," said Norwegian party Arbeiderpartiet's rapporteur on energy political matters, Terje Aasland, at a press conference in Oslo on Wednesday night, according to newspaper Aftenposten.
