Berthing for gas tankers consists of three product jetties
Kaarsto receives gas from Statoil’s Asgard development and other fields in the
Norwegian Sea through the Asgard Transport trunkline
Condensate from the Sleipner area of the Norwegian North Sea is piped to Kaarsto
for stabilisation and fractionation in a separate plant
Processing facilities at the complex separate natural gas liquids from rich gas arriving
by pipeline. These NGL’s are then split into propane, butanes and naphtha
There is a processing plant for ethane with an annual cap of 620 000 t
There are also berths for coastal and ro/ro vessels with a depth alongside of 7.7 m

Traffic: 2001, 600 vessels
Maximum Vessel Dimensions: 275 m loa, 13 m draft
Storage: Propane is stored in two large rock caverns with a combined cap of 90 000
t. Normal and iso butane plus naphtha are held in tanks
