Dana Petroleum has completed the installation of a gas import and export pipeline for its Western Isles Development Project.

The 6 inch pipeline is approximately 7 miles long, and was fabricated at the Subsea 7’s spoolbase in Leith, Scotland.

The pipeline will export extra gas produced in the area to the Tern-North Cormorant gas pipeline.

This is the first pipeline to be installed for Dana Petroleum’s recently revamped facility.

The company completed and tested the flow from the first production well for its Western Isles Development Project in April.

Three more wells had been drilled and cased to surface casing depth.
