An innovative partnership between gas platforms and windfarms could see more power generated, maximising both gas production and renewable electricity generation offshore, according to a report from the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA).

The concept of gas-to-wire (GTW) involves using the gas produced from gas fields to be generated into electricity offshore and then transmitted to shore via spare capacity with subsea cables used for windfarms.

This OGA report looks at the technical considerations and potential benefits from GTW in areas such as the Southern North Sea and the East Irish Sea.
