NPD Grants Start-up Consents for North Sea Oil, Gas Pipelines

The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate has granted start-up consents for the Edvard Grieg oil pipeline and the Utsira High gas pipeline, which will serve the Edvard Grieg and Ivar Aasen fields in the North Sea.

The oil transport system includes a 26 mile long, 28-inch pipeline between the Edvard Grieg platform and a new Y-connection point, which has been installed on the Grane oil pipeline, and the gas transport system includes a 58 mile long, 16-inch pipeline from the Edvard Grieg platform to an underwater connection point on the Beryl pipeline. This, in turn, is connected to the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) pipeline in the UK sector.

Statoil has been the operator of both transport systems since the Plan for Installation and Operation (PIO) was approved in 2014. Gassco will take over as operator of the Utsira High gas pipeline when it comes on stream. Start-up of the Edvard Grieg field is planned towards the end of 2015, whereas the planned start-up of Ivar Aasen is scheduled for next year.
