Scotland to Northern Ireland Pipeline (SNIP) Project

Upgrade of Scotland to Northern Ireland (‘SNIP’) Pipeline

The project entails upgrading of the SNIP to accommodate physical reverse flow between Ballylumford and Twynholm. In order to flow back to G.B., the current network requires installation of bi-directional compression on SNIP; pipework modifications at 2 AGIs to allow bi-directional metering and flow control; and moving the gas odourisation point to a new point(s) downstream of the bi-directional transmission system.

The project has also achieved ‘Project of Common Interest’ (PCI) status; making it onto both the 2013 and 2015 published EU PCI lists.
