Gassco takes over as operator of the Knarr pipeline

Gassco has taken over as operator of the Knarr pipeline, which will transport rich gas to the Shell-Esso Gas and Liquids (Segal) system and St Fergus in Scotland.

Knarr is a gas and oil field located about 100 kilometres north of Statfjord in the northern North Sea.

“We’ve had a close and good collaboration with Knarr operator BG Norge Ltd throughout the process of preparing the pipeline for operation,” reports Svein Birger Thaule, executive vice president for asset management at Gassco.

“The next milestone now is to complete emptying water from the pipeline and start filling it with gas. Start-up is expected during the spring.” Gassco became operator of the Knarr Gas Pipeline Joint Venture on 1 March, which owns the 12-inch pipeline, and also has technical responsibility for its operation. Tied into the existing Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (Flags), the new 106-kilometre rich gas pipeline has a technical capacity of 1.7 million standard cubic metres per day.
