The North Sea offshore pipeline

The overall purpose of the Baltic Pipe Project is the transmission of natural gas from Norway to Poland, Denmark, Sweden, the Baltic states and Central and Eastern European regions.

Therefore an offshore pipeline between the Norwegian gas system in the North Sea and the Danish onshore transmission system is an important element of the project.

The tie-in to the Norwegian supply source will be established by means of an offshore pipeline connected to the existing North-South infrastructure in the North Sea – Europipe II – which currently connects Norway and Germany.

The offshore pipeline landfall on the west coast of Denmark is planned on the beach near Blåbjerg.

Energinet, who will own the North Sea pipeline, is responsible for planning, constructing and operating this part of the project.
