History

In 1987 a large gas field was discovered north of Den Helder. Based on an extensive survey carried out by ELF Petroland (the current Total E&P Nederland B.V.) and NAM B.V. the decision was made - in close cooperation with EBN - to build a 264-kilometer long NOGAT-pipeline system. The production platforms of various oil and gas companies were connected to this system, after which use of the pipeline really took off in 1992. In 2000 Wintershall connected a pipeline from the German Continental shelf to the NOGAT pipeline. In 2004 Maersk did the same for gas fields on the Danish Continental Shelf.

In 2008 GDF SUEZ E&P Nederland B.V. took over the interest of NAM in NOGAT. As of that moment they also took over the general management of the system. The daily operations of the GBI in Den Helder - part of the NOGAT system, are taken care of by NAM at the request of NOGAT.
