Green light to Gassco for Utsira High pipeline
The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has given Gassco consent to use the Utsira High Gas Pipe (UHGP).
Namely, Gassco took over operatorship of the pipeline in November 2016. In addition, Gassco is also the technical operations provider for the pipeline.
The pipeline will transport rich gas to Britain’s Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (Sage) system and St Fergus in Scotland.
Utsira High is a 94-kilometre-long gas pipeline running from the Edvard Grieg field 57 km north of Sleipner in the northern North Sea.
The UHGP rich gas line ties into the existing SAGE pipeline. Its technical capacity is five million standard cubic metres per day.
