  • Installation of two new crossovers from the Statpipe inlet and the Åsgard inlet in order to meet the CO2 content requirements for export gas sales from Kårstø, as well as improve availability at the processing facility.
  • Install a new 36” flare line from the Statpipe inlet to the Åsgard flare, as well as replacement of the existing Statpipe inlet pressure reduction station.
