Dana Petroleum installs gas pipeline in the North Sea

Dana Petroleum has successfully installed a gas import and export pipeline for its Western Isles Development Project.

The 6 inch pipeline is approximately 7 miles long and was made and inspected at the Subsea 7's spoolbase in Leith, Scotland. The pipeline was installed using the Seven Navica vessel and will export extra gas produced in the area to the Tern-North Cormorant gas pipeline as well as import gas and fuel when needed.

This is the first pipelines to be installed for Dana Petroleum's recently revamped facility and marks the completion of the first stage of the company's 2014 offshore subsea campaign.

Dana Petroleum completed and tested the flow from the first production well for its Western Isles Development Project in April. Three more wells had been drilled and cased to surface casing depth as well. The Western Isles Development Project is the development of two oil fields in the North Sea, including the subsea construction of at least five production wells and four water injection wells tied to a floating production vessel, which exports the oil via shuttle tankers.
