Norpipe

The Norpipe system from the Ekofisk field in the North Sea to Emden in Germany is 443 kilometres long and has a diameter of 36 inches

Deliveries from Ekofisk to the receiving terminal at Emden began in September 1977. This represented the first delivery of dry gas from the Norwegian continental shelf to European buyers. Previously owned by Norsea Gas AS, the system was tied back to Statpipe in 1985. It terminates at Gasscos's receiving terminal in Emden.
