Ancala handling North Sea Rolvsnes gas deliveries

Ancala Midstream Acquisitions has received first gas from Lundin’s extended well test at the Rolvsnes field in the Norwegian North Sea into the SAGE gas trunkline system.


Production from Rolvsnes heads to the nearby Edvard Grieg complex for onward delivery through the 323-km (201-mile) SAGE pipeline system to the St Fergus reception terminal in north-east Scotland.


Lundin expects to add further supplies later this year once the Solveig-Grieg tieback comes onstream.


Jim Halliday, CEO of Ancala Midstream, said: “SAGE is a vital strategic asset for the North Sea, serving a wide catchment area where ongoing exploration, appraisal, and development activity on the UK and Norwegian sides of the median line will continue to provide resources vital to energy security and the energy transition.”


By 4Q this year, Ancala Midstream expects to transport and process 60% of all gas volumes transported through SAGE. The system serves UK central North Sea production hubs at the Beryl, Britannia, Golden Eagle and Scott fields, and Alvheim, Edvard Grieg, and Ivar Aasen in Norwegian waters.
