Norway – NYX Nyhamna Landfall – KTC 500

Project description

Allseas client Statoil AS is undertaking the development of a natural gas pipeline system to deliver gas from the Aasta Hansteen Field, within the Polar Circle, to consumers in Europe.

The pipeline system consists of a 36” pipeline section from the PLEM structure at Aasta Hansteen, towards the landfall at the Nyhamna plant.

The Nyhamna Gas Processing Plant is located on the Island of Aukra, near the City of Molde. The plant is operated by Norske Shell and will be fully operational.

Part of the project is a landfall where the pipe lay will be initiated via a beach pull. As part of the initial pipelay process, the pipeline will require to be pulled-in onto the landfall site utilizing Bezemer’s equipment and operators.

The pipe shall be pulled in over a gravel bed onto the beach. The pipeline shall be pulled in at approximately 80 feet (24 meters) intervals, reflecting the lay vessel’s production rate. Anticipated pull-in load 400 mton.

A 500 mton hold back anchor will be made available in the Nyhamna Gas Processing Facility.

Bezemer supplied the equipment for the pull-in of the 36” pipeline section. The equipment has been designed to work in gas environment and has been tested entirely at construction and used for the pull-in of J-Tubes at Troll A and also at Gullfaks C.
