KØPERVIK, Norway – Norwegian gas trunklines operator Gassco delivered record volumes from Norway’s offshore fields to European customers last year.

Gassco dispatched 108 bcm (3.8 tcf) to receiving terminals in Germany, Belgium, France and the UK, an increase of 7 bcm (247 bcf) over 2014.

CEO Frode Leversund said: “Availability for delivering gas through the transport system exceeded 99% in 2015.

“More than 30% of Norwegian gas exports pass through our process plant at Kollsnes near Bergen, where capacity utilization was record-high last year.”

In addition, Gassco claims to have set a new delivery record for a single day of 365.3 MMcm on Nov. 22.

Overall deliveries of natural gas liquids and condensate from the process plants at Kårstø and Kollsnes (via Vestprosess) increased last year to 9.6 MM metric tons (10.6 MM tons), up from 8.1 MM metric tons (8.9 MM tons) the previous year.
