Gassco announces more Norwegian gas to European buyers

Thursday, Jan 10, 2013

Gas piped from fields off Norway to receiving terminals in Germany, Belgium, France and the UK totalled 107.6 billion standard cubic metres (scm) in 2012, up by 13.4 billion from 2011.

“This represents a new record for Norway’s annual gas deliveries,” says Brian Bjordal, chief executive of transport system operator Gassco.

“That reflects high and stable output from the Norwegian continental shelf and strong demand, which confirms in turn that gas from Norway is more attractive than ever.”

Figures from Gassco show that 1.4 billion scm of Norwegian gas were delivered to domestic consumers in 2012, compared with 1.6 billion the year before.

The company’s goal is to operate the integrated transport system for Norwegian gas with the highest possible delivery regularity.

An average regularity of 99.69 per cent was achieved for the network last year, compared with 99.17 per cent in 2011.

Deliveries of liquefied natural gas (NGL) and condensate from the processing plants at Kårstø and Kollsnes (via Vestprosess) totalled 7 960 847 tonnes, compared with 7 993 309 tonnes in 2011.
