On Monday 28 September, the final pipe in the 482.4 kilometre long Polarled Pipeline was laid at the Aasta Hansteen field at a depth of 1,260 metres in the Norwegian Sea.

Polarled is the first pipeline on the Norwegian continental shelf that crosses the Arctic Circle and opens up a brand new highway for gas from the Norwegian Sea to Europe.

The pipeline, which has a diameter of 36 inches, extends from Nyhamna in Møre og Romsdal to the Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea and was laid by the world's largest pipelaying vessel: “Solitaire” from Allseas.

The pipelaying work commenced in March this year and the pipeline consists of more than 40,000 pipes, each of which is 12 metres in length. Polarled is the deepest pipeline on the Norwegian continental shelf. At the Aasta Hansteen field, the pipeline reaches a depth of 1,260 metres.

It is the first time ever that a pipe that is 36 inches in diameter has been laid at such a depth. The pipeline’s capacity will be up to 70 million standard cubic metres of gas per day.
