Summary Information


  • Frigg connects the Fuka St Fergus Gas Processing Terminal with the Frigg Gas Field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea
  • The Frigg UK Pipeline system commences at the Alwyn North Field and consists of 24" diameter pipeline which is 110 km long and connects into the 32" diameter line in the vicinity of the Frigg Field facilities (at the TP1 bypass spool).
  • The line between the TP1 bypass spool and the the Frigg UK Terminal at St Fergus is 362km long. The 32" pipeline was laid and commissioned in 1977 and has been in continuous service since that date. In 2003, the 32" pipeline celebrated its 25th anniversary.
  • An 18" pipeline from the Flotta Catchment Area enters the system via a sub-sea connection in the vicinity of the decommissioned MCP-01 platform. This is located in UKCS Block 14/9.
  • There are also tie-ins from the Bruce, Ross, Captain and Buzzard fields. The SIRGE pipeline which will tie-in in mid-2014 will run from the Shetland Gas Plant (SGP) at Sullom Voe on Shetland to a sub-sea tie-in on the FUKA Pipeline at the MCP01 bypass valves.
  • The nominal capacity of the 32" pipeline is 36 MMscm/d. The actual capacity is a function of gas source location and compositions.
