Belgium-based natural gas transmission system operator, Fluxys, has acquired Gazprom’s 10 per cent stake in Interconnector (UK), owner and operator of the subsea pipeline between the UK and Belgium. 

The Interconnector is bidirectional transmission link connecting the UK to Continental European markets. The pipeline offers the UK market a tool for physical export to mainland Europe, contributing to the diversification of sources for Continental Europe.

Walter Peeraer, managing director and CEO of Fluxys, said: “Through the acquisition of Gazprom’s stake Fluxys becomes majority shareholder in Interconnector (UK) and we are fully aligned with our co-shareholders to move the company forward.”

Fluxys through the transaction increases its direct stake in Interconnector (UK) to 35%. Besides its direct stake, Fluxys holds with industry partner Snam on a 50/50 basis a joint stake of 31.50% in Interconnector (UK) and Fluxys shareholder Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec holds an interest of 33.5% in the company.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
