The direction of gas flow through the Interconnector is a function of market demand. The pipeline system responds to nominated volumes and flow direction from its customers. The duration of flow in this new direction will also be subject to market demand and subsequent nominations.
Interconnector (UK) Ltd, or IUK, operates a sub-sea pipeline and terminal facilities connecting the UK and continental Europe. The company's 40" diameter carbon steel pipeline stretches 230 kilometers between Bacton in north Norfolk and Zeebrugge in Belgium. It is capable of transporting 20 billion cubic meters a year (bcm/yr) from Bacton to Zeebrugge and 16.5 bcm/yr in the opposite direction. Owned by seven major companies IUK has sold capacity in the pipeline to gas shippers. A dedicated and award-winning IT system, ISIS, manages the volumes and flows and provides constantly updated information to IUK and its customers.
