Norsk Hydro Gets Go-Ahead to Use Njord A Facilities

Norsk Hydro Produksjon AS has been granted consent to use the newly installed production facilities for gas export on the Njord A facility and the pipeline tied in to the Asgard Transport gas pipeline system from Asgard to Karsto.

The development of Njord Gasseksport is part of Hydro's plan for further development and resource exploitation of the Njord field using existing infrastructure in the area.

Njord Gasseksport comprises the installation of a new 10" riser, installation of a new 12" gas pipeline and a new connection via Draugen PLEM (Pipeline End Module) to GasLED (Asgard pipeline).

Additional installations include a gas dehydration module, a regeneration plant for glycol, a gas metering station and a communication system for contact between Njord A and Gassco's control center at Bygnes.

Planned start-up for gas export from Njord is October 1, 2007.
