An application to build a combined heat and power station at the Mongstad refinery near Bergen is being submitted by Statoil to the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE). A revised request for a renewed emissions permit covering Mongstad, including the new power station, will also be sent to the Norwegian Pollution Control Authority (SFT). The proposed heat and power station would be fuelled by Troll gas piped from the Kollsnes processing plant further south and by surplus gas from the refinery. The project is being developed as part of efforts to strengthen, continue developing and enhance energy efficiency at Mongstad, and also to ensure long-term electricity supplies for the Troll field - which faces growing power requirements in coming years, states Statoil.
