Consent to conduct manned underwater operations at compressor facility H-7

Gassco AS (Gassco) has received consent to conduct manned underwater operations (MUO) in connection with installation of a by-pass around the H-7 facility, which is located on the German continental shelf.


illustrasjon H-7 by-passThe H-7 facility was once used as a compressor facility for the gas pipeline from Ekofisk to Emden in northwestern Germany.

As a consequence of new technology, H-7 is no longer necessary for transportation of the gas.

This is why Gassco now wants to install a by-pass on the seabed around the H-7 facility.

The diving operations will be carried out by SUBSEA 7.
