The oil transport system includes a 43-km (27-mi) long, 28-in. pipeline between the Edvard Grieg platform and a new Y-connection point on the Grane oil pipeline, 4 km (2.5 mi) from the Grane platform.
The gas transport system includes a 94-km (58.4-mi), 16-in. pipeline from the Edvard Grieg platform to an underwater T-connection on the Beryl pipeline in the UK central North Sea. This, in turn, is connected to the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) pipeline.
Statoil has operated both new transport systems since the plan for installation and operation was approved in 2014. Gassco will become operator of the Utsira High gas pipeline when it comes onstream.
