TotalEnergies relaunches Tyra Hub: A major step towards European energy independence

TAGS

TotalEnergies has officially announced the resumption of production at the Tyra hub, located in the Danish North Sea, following an extensive redevelopment project. This milestone positions Denmark to regain its status as a self-sufficient and net exporter of natural gas, with the Tyra hub expected to yield 5.7 million cubic meters of gas and 22,000 barrels of condensate per day at its peak.

The Tyra field, operated by TotalEnergies on behalf of the Danish Underground Consortium—a partnership comprising TotalEnergies (43.2%), BlueNord (36.8%), and Nordsøfonden (20%)—is set to be one of the world’s most advanced offshore gas installations. The project underscores a significant achievement in digital and technological innovation, designed to enhance production efficiency while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30% compared to previous operations.

Nicolas Terraz, President of Exploration & Production at TotalEnergies, highlighted the project’s importance, stating, “We are pleased to restart the Tyra hub…The success of this major redevelopment project owes a lot to the commitment of our teams, our partners, and our contractors. Importantly, the resumption of gas production from Tyra improves Europe’s security of supply.” This development comes at a crucial time, bolstering Europe’s energy security amid growing concerns over energy supply and sustainability.

Discovered in 1968 by Maersk Oil and located 225 kilometers west of Esbjerg’s coast, Tyra’s redevelopment was initiated in September 2019, with operations suspended to allow for the overhaul. The project involved the decommissioning of old facilities and the installation of 8 new platform topsides, 2 jackets, and 6 bridges. A noteworthy aspect of the redevelopment is the commitment to sustainability, with 98.5% of materials from the retired installations being reused or recycled.

Gas from the Tyra hub is now set to flow to Europe via two export pipelines to Nybro in Denmark and Den Helder in the Netherlands, reinforcing the continent’s access to reliable and cleaner energy sources.

The reopening of the Tyra hub is not just a technical achievement; it’s a strategic asset for Europe’s energy landscape. By leveraging cutting-edge technology and prioritizing environmental sustainability, TotalEnergies is paving the way for a more secure and sustainable energy future for Europe. This initiative is a testament to the potential of technological advancements to meet the dual challenges of energy security and environmental sustainability in the energy sector.
