Ramp-up of production from Tyra temporarily impacted by malfunctioning transformer

Esbjerg, 6 May 2024 – The redeveloped Tyra delivered its first gas supplies in the spring of 2024, and the largest infrastructure project in the Danish North Sea is in the ramp-up phase towards full production. Reaching the full technical capacity of Tyra is now expected in Q4 2024 due to an unforeseen technical occurrence.

Since first gas was exported from the new Tyra facilities to Denmark in March 2024, the teams have been working to safely, and gradually re-establish the gas flow from the surrounding fields to Tyra. On 18 April and 29 April 2024, TotalEnergies EP Danmark reported on the technical issues to the gas market which has been impacting the commissioning, and we can now confirm that the technical issue relates to a transformer delivering power to the Intermediate Pressure (IP) gas compressor. 

Our investigations have concluded that the transformer of the IP compressor needs to be repaired which ultimately impacts the ramp-up this summer.

On a project of this size and complexity located 225 kilometers out in the North Sea, such unplanned issues can happen. Currently, we are in close dialogue with our supplier of the IP compressor transformer and the whole Tyra team is working diligently to resolve and mitigate the issue as fast as possible,

says Michael Lindholm Pihl Larsen, Technical Project Lead for Tyra Redevelopment at TotalEnergies EP Danmark.

While the repair work is ongoing, different options to deliver additional gas volumes to Denmark are being explored. 

Our key priority remains to safely complete the ramp-up enabling Denmark to become a net exporter and self-sufficient in respect of gas later in the year,

says Michael Lindholm Pihl Larsen.

While work is ongoing to repair the malfunctioning key equipment, the commissioning of the facilities and gas exports from Tyra continues at present levels, but the gas volumes may be redirected to Den Helder (NL) during remediation.
