A total of 101 billion standard cubic metres (scm) of gas was transported in 2014 within Gassco’s operatorship from the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) to terminals in Germany, Belgium, France and the UK.
“Norwegian gas makes a substantial contribution to energy supply in major European countries, and these exports remain at a high and stable level characterised by very good regularity,” comments Brian Bjordal, chief executive of Gassco.
Dry gas deliveries from Norway declined slightly in 2014, and were down by 1.5 billion scm compared with the year before.
Gassco’s object is to operate the integrated transport system for Norwegian gas in a way which ensures the highest possible security of supply.
