Consent for major retrofit of the Kollsnes gas facility

Gassco AS has received consent for a major retrofit of the Kollsnes gas facility. A new export gas compressor will be installed, along with the necessary tie-in points for pipes and instruments.

Gas from Kvitebjørn is being landed and processed at the NGL (Natural Gas Liquid) facility at Kollsnes in Øygarden municipality in Hordaland County. The facility is part of the Gassled pipeline system.

The gas is compressed at Kollsnes before being sent to the Continent. The export capacity will increase when the new compressor is put to use.

Gassco is the operator of Gassled. Statoil is the technical service provider and is responsible for the daily operation of the Kollsnes facility.
