Dogger Bank partners Equinor, Eni and SSE face a growing risk of impairments on what will be the world’s largest offshore wind project due to the impacts of rapidly rising commodity prices and supply chain disruptions.

Upstream reported last November that a Norwegian government-funded study into Dogger Bank had concluded that the UK North Sea scheme will be unprofitable.

Petter Osmundsen, the professor at the University of Stavanger’s Institute for Industrial Economics who headed the study, now says rising costs have increased the risk of impairments for the project partners, particularly for Eni.
