  • One leg runs over land and through three submarine tunnels from Kårstø to Kalstø, through a concrete culvert in the shore zone and on to the Draupner S platform in the North Sea. This line is 228 kilometres long and has an internal diameter of 28 inches.
  • With an internal diameter of 36 inches, the second leg in the system runs for 155 kilometres from the Heimdal platform in the North Sea to Draupner S. A third section, also with an internal diameter of 36 inches, continues for 213 kilometres from Draupner S to the Ekofisk complex further south.
  • When this part of the system opened in1985, it terminated at the Ekofisk 2/4-S riser platform. The latter has since been removed.
  • A bypass was laid in the summer of 1998 to take the Statpipe system around the Ekofisk complex.
