Norway's Valemon natural gas field boosting production on Forties pipeline restart

London (Platts)--29 Dec 2017 612 am EST/1112 GMT


Natural gas production at the Valemon gas field is on course to return to full capacity in the near term, with Norwegian gas operator Gassco reducing volume impacts Friday.

Valemon, which has had a 10.5 million cu m/d gas production restriction in place since December 12 due to the shutdown of the Forties Pipeline System, is now set to have a 10.1 million cu m/d volume impact during Friday's gas day and a 5.5 million cu m/d volume impact on Saturday's gas day.

The gas produced at the Valemon field, about 160 km (about 100 miles) west of Bergen, is split between Huldra and Heimdal before being transported to the UK and Continental Europe, with the condensate from the field piped to Kvitebjorn for stabilization before being sent to the Mongstad refinery near Bergen.

Norwegian pipeline gas exports were running at 340 million cu m/d Friday, split between Continental Europe and the UK at 205 million cu m/d and 135 million cu m/d, respectively, Gassco reported.
