The 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.
