Since 1992, NOGAT B.V. (Northern Offshore Gas Transport) has been transporting gas from various locations on the Dutch sector of the North Sea via its own subsea pipeline system, to the onshore gas treatment station in Den Helder. The pipeline system runs via a 24” pipeline from production platform F3-FB in block F3 to platform L2-FA in block L2. From there, the natural gas is transported further via a 36” pipeline to the gas treatment station in Den Helder, where the gas is brought to specification.
The pipeline system on the Danish continental shelf is connected to the NOGAT pipeline system via the Tyra West - F3 pipeline. This 100-kilometer long natural gas subsea pipeline connects the Danish continental shelf with the Dutch continental shelf, thus facilitating the export of Danish gas to North-West Europe.
Also the pipeline system on the German continental shelf is connected to the NOGAT pipeline system, by means of the A6-F3 connection. This 20” subsea pipeline has a total length of 118 kilometers.
