This starts at the Edvard Grieg field, 57 km (35 mi) north of Sleipner in the Norwegian North Sea, and will transport up to 5 MMcm/d (177 MMcf/d) of rich gas to a connection point at the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (Sage) pipeline system in the UK, and onward to the St Fergus terminal north of Aberdeen.
“We have collaborated closely…with development operator Statoil while readying the UHGP,” said Kristin Kinn Kaste, vice president for the transport network at Gassco.
“The next milestone will be to complete de-watering and start to fill with gas, and the line is expected to become operational by the end of this year.”
Gassco became operator on Nov. 1 for the UHGP joint venture, and is also responsible for technical management of the new facility.
