Change of gas quality in the Tyra redevelopment period

A change in gas quality is to be expected in the Danish and Swedish gas market over time due to the redevelopment of the Tyra platform. A data sheet shows the estimated gas quality in the coming years.

In the period of the Tyra redevelopment, the gas quality will change, as the flow of gas changes from coming mainly from the North Sea field to being imported from Germany via Ellund up until October 2022 when Baltic Pipe will be commissioned.

To begin with the Danish and Swedish gas consumers will still in periods be supplied from stored gas originating from the North Sea, as the gas was stored in previous periods. Gradually the gas quality will change due to different origins and specifications of the gas in the years to come.

The stored North Sea gas decreases over time, and eventually the storage facilities will mainly contain imported gas from Germany with a supplement of gas from the Syd Arne pipeline and biogas injected into the gas system.



For more information about the gas quality, please take a look at the data sheet on gas quality in the redevelopment period including the expected quality of Norwegian gas.

The data sheet is calculated based on historical data and expected gas supplies.
