OSLO, Norway – Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has given Statoil permission to use the new Edvard Grieg oil pipeline.

This will transport stabilized oil from the Lundin Petroleum-operated Edvard Grieg complex in the North Sea to the Grane oil pipeline, where production will be commingled and transported onward to the Sture terminal on Norway’s west coast.

The Edvard Grieg field is 35 km (21.7 mi) south of the Grane and Balder fields in a water depth of roughly 110 m (361 ft).
