Skanled gas pipe scheme a go

According to the partners in Norway’s Skanled gas pipeline project the scheme has been given the go-ahead after dropping plans for a separation plant. The planned separation plant for natural gas liquids in the Grenland area of SE Norway has been axed, but the scheme will otherwise go ahead, Gassco said. The decision to proceed follows a clarification of plans by Ineos for investment at the Rafnes petrochemicals complex in Greenland. INEOS still has plans to expand the capacity of its existing cracker to produce a further 100,000tns of ethylene based on a feedstock combination of LPG and ethane. The company plans to expand its Norwegian operations at Rafnes long-term at an appropriate time, when market demand warrants the investment and sufficient Norwegian ethane becomes available.
