Draupner S/E

The Draupner S and E platforms in the North Sea form a key hub in Norway's network of submarine gas pipelines, with pressure, volume and quality monitoring of gas flows as their most important functions.

Draupner S was installed in 1984 as part of the Statpipe system. The first gas flowed through the platform in April 1985.

Draupner E was installed in 1994 as part of the Europipe I gas trunkline system from the Sleipner fields to Emden in Germany.

With seven risers measuring 28 to 42 inches in diameter and associated manifolds, these installations occupy an important place in Norway's gas transport system to continental Europe.
