Map over pipelines on the Dutch part of the North Sea

ENGIE E&P made its first gas discovery in the Dutch part of the North Sea in 1970 in block L10. For the treatment and transportation of the gas production in block L10 a dedicated company named Noordgastransport B.V. was founded in 1973. In 1975 first gas was produced – a scoop.

Noordgastransport B.V. was then the first operator of an offshore gas transportation pipeline system in the Dutch sector of the North Sea. ENGIE E&P expanded its systems with the acquisition of the NOGAT B.V. gas transportation pipeline system in 2008. These days gas flows from Dutch, UK, Danish and German offshore gas producers through the entire 950 km long offshore pipeline networks.
