Gassco will serve as operator of the new Tampen Link pipeline when this facility becomes operational in 2007.

The new pipeline will connect the Statfjord field with the Flags gas transport system in the UK North Sea.

Being constructed in conjunction with the Statfjord late life project, this facility is costed at NOK 1.5 billion. Statoil will be the development operator.

Tampen Link is due to be laid in 2006 and ready to take gas exports from 1 October 2007. It will run for 23.1 kilometres from the Statfjord B platform to a Flags tie-in.

Modifications on Statfjord will tie the new pipeline into the existing flowlines on the field and the Gassled gas transport system. This in turn will increase Norwegian gas export capacity.

Statoil submitted a plan for development and operation (PDO) of Statfjord late life and a plan for installation and operation (PIO) of Tampen Link to the government on 25 February.

Partners in Tampen Link are Statoil with 43.9 per cent, ExxonMobil with 18.2 per cent, Shell with 12.2 per cent,
Hydro with 10.5 per cent, ConocoPhillips with 8.2 per cent and Petoro with seven per cent.
