Successful gas infrastructure divestment in Norway

DEA sells its ownership in the Nyhamna onshore gas processing plant, the Polarled gas pipeline and Gassled, the Norwegian gas transportation network, to CapeOmega.

“The transaction represents a step forward ‎in DEA’s strategy to divest legacy infrastructure assets in our portfolio and unlock value in support of the growth of our upstream business,”

said Hans-Hermann Andreae, Managing Director of DEA Norge. 
Completion of the Polarled pipeline and the Nyhamna terminal expansion create transportation capacity for the gas production from DEA’s operated Dvalin field, currently under development.

Furthermore, it is opening a new region for supplying Norwegian natural gas to the markets in continental Europe and the United Kingdom. The establishment of the Polarled and Nyhamna joint ventures and approval by Norwegian authorities of an agreed tariff structure, have allowed DEA to market these non-core infrastructure assets this year and monetise its investments in them.

The transaction is expected to complete in the first half of 2018, subject to approvals by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the Ministry of Finance.
