Newly Installed Gas Turbines are Ready for Power-up at Tyra II

Published on: 

The new gas turbines will be the primary source of power for the Tyra II natural gas hub.

TotalEnergies has successfully powered up two gas turbines at the Tyra field nearly a month ahead of the planned schedule. This marks a milestone in the final stages of the Tyra Redevelopment project, as the operational turbines form the primary source of power supply for the entire Tyra II hub and the nearby fields.

Teams are committed to round-the-clock work to restore the Tyra field to production by the 2023/24 winter season. Tyra is poised to reinstate Denmark's self-sufficiency and reestablish its status as a net exporter of affordable and stable energy, a development that will also benefit neighboring European nations.


This power-up brings the most substantial infrastructure project in the Danish North Sea closer to completion. Once fully operational, Tyra is expected to supply 2.8 billion m3 of gas annually.

TotalEnergies operates the Tyra field on behalf of DUC, a partnership comprising TotalEnergies (43.2%), BlueNord (36.8%), and Nordsøfonden (20%). Tyra has historically been responsible for processing and exporting over 90% of the Danish North Sea's natural gas. The field's redevelopment became necessary due to the natural subsidence of the chalk reservoir after years of production.
