PSA gives Polarled commissioning consent

Written by  OE Staff Wednesday, 05 April 2017 17:10

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) has given Gassco consent to use the Polarled pipeline.

Polarled is a new gas pipeline from Aasta Hansteen in the Norwegian Sea to the Nyhamna gas-processing facility in Møre og Romsdal county. The pipeline creates a new transport solution for gas from the field in the Norwegian Sea and a new common infrastructure for handling increased production volumes. The joint venture company Polarled JV owns the pipeline, which is 481km long and 36in in diameter.

Statoil is the operator for the development, while Gassco takes over operatorship once the work to dewater the pipeline and fill it with gas begins. This work is scheduled to start on 15 May 2017. The pipeline will then be left gas-filled until gas deliveries from Aasta Hansteen begin in autumn 2018.
