About The Database
Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database – best available technology!
To promote Norwegian technology and solutions, we introduce the Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database, a gateway to Norwegian world-class technology and competence. The Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database identifies and highlights companies in Norway that deliver technology and solutions representing potential contributions to oil and gas operations in the cold climate regions.
Some of the defining characteristics of the arctic and cold climate regions are the special weather conditions, the light phenomenon, the large geographical areas and the vast distances to nearest infrastructure. These conditions affect cost, safety and access to emergency preparedness. The skills needed to carry out safe operations in these vulnerable areas requires great knowledge, experience and ground breaking technologies. Access to such information is hence key to overcoming the various challenges.
NORWEGIAN ENERGY PARTNERS’ Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions project have therefore strengthened the identification and marketing of Norwegian suppliers within the oil and gas industry by establishing this Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database. The Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database will contribute to the emergence of a new Norwegian business cluster for Arctic conditions. We aim to ensure that Norwegian suppliers achieve a strong position in the development and production of competitive solutions. Norwegian-developed technological solutions for arctic and cold climate regions have been utilised for offshore developments at Goliat, Aasta Hansteen, Snøhvit and Melkøya onshore LNG terminal. Norwegian competences have also helped shaping offshore and onshore industries in other arctic and cold climate regions, such as Russia, Canada, Kazakhstan and Alaska.
The Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database will:
- Promote Norwegian suppliers of innovative and proven arctic and cold-climate technologies
- Demonstrate broad industrial spread in both products and company specific capabilities
- Contribute to the emergence of a Norwegian business cluster for arctic conditions
It is our objective that the Arctic and Cold Climate Solutions Database will be the preferred knowledge based portal to competence, experience and technology for projects in the Arctic and cold climate environments.
