Statoil has been granted consent by Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to use a replacement pipeline between Heidrun and subsea structure E on the Heidrun field.
The replacement of the Heidrun P-E pipeline is part of a project to develop and extend the life of Heidrun Nordflanken by 20 years.
The new pipeline will be installed in May/June 2018, and anticipated start-up is between July and September 2018.
Heidrun is a field on Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, 30 kilometers north-east of Åsgard. The PDO for Heidrun Nordflanken was approved in 2000. The northern part of the field has been developed using subsea facilities.
