Gas from Heimdal is processed together with gas from the Valemon, Skirne, Atla og Vale fields. In addition, Heimdal receives gas from the Oseberg Field Center through the Oseberg Gas Transport system (OGT). Periodically, reverse gas flow from the Statpipe pipeline goes to Heimdal and on to Vesterled.
Heimdal is also equipped to export gas as pressure support to produce oil on the Grane field, after it started operating on 1 October 2003.
The total maximum rate of processed gas on Heimdal is comparable to some 15-20 percent of Norway’s total gas export.
Vale is a gas/condensate field on PL036 and connected to Heimdal. The field is developed as a satellite with a sea floor template tied into a riser platform on Heimdal. Vale started production in May 2002.
The Skirne field has also delivered gas to Heimdal since 2004. This is a smaller gas field that lies east of Heimdal, and which is also connected as a satellite via wells on the sea floor.
In October 2013 production from Atla began. This is also a smaller field lying east of Heimdal, and Atla and Skirne share a common production pipeline in to Heimdal.
Together with gas from Valemon, Skirne, Atla, Heimdal and Vale, gas from the Oseberg Gas Transport system (OGT) is divided between the Statpipe and Vesterled pipelines and distributed onwards to the European continent and the UK.
Condensate from processed gas on Heimdal will be sent by pipeline to the Brae platform in the UK sector. It will go from there to the Forties Pipeline System, and further on to land facilities in the UK.
