Ancala Midstream Gets Lundin Energy Norway Contract for Gas Transportation, Processing

Special to P&GJ

Ancala Midstream Acquisitions secured a life-of-field contract to transport and process gas from the Solveig field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

The Solveig field is operated by Lundin Energy Norway, one of Europe's leading independent oil and gas exploration and production companies. First gas is expected in Q3 2021 and will be processed through Ancala Midstream’s capacity in the Beryl pipeline and the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation pipeline and terminal at St. Fergus in Scotland. 

Aberdeen-headquartered Ancala Midstream will also provide transportation and processing for Lundin’s extended production test on the Rolvsnes field, which is expected to commence production in Q3 2022 and is also in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea.

Solveig is the first of two new fields tying into Ancala Midstream’s capacity in the SAGE System in 2021 and will increase Ancala Midstream’s throughput in the SAGE System to 55%.

“The addition of two new fields and the substantial reserves growth from the prolific Edvard Grieg area, provides further evidence of the strong prospectivity in the SAGE catchment area, as well as the confidence our customers have in the SAGE System as their offtake system of choice,” said Jim Halliday, Chief Executive of Ancala Midstream. “We have worked

Ancala worked closely with Lundin to develop innovative solutions to the technical challenges faced and in doing so reduced project development costs for the Solveig and Rolvsnes Owners, he said.

“We greatly appreciate the support we have received from the Ancala Midstream team in securing the transportation and processing agreements for the Solveig and Rolvsnes fields, which are key elements of our Edvard Grieg field hub growth strategies,” said Kristin Færøvik, Managing Director of Lundin Energy Norway. “We look forward to future additions to the portfolio and further business with Ancala Midstream.”
