CATS - the Central Area Transmission System – is a natural gas transportation and processing system that transports gas through a 404 kilometre (250 mile) 36 inch diameter subsea pipeline from the Central North Sea to a reception and processing terminal at Teesside in the North East of England.
CATS is a critically important piece of North Sea infrastructure. It has been operating safely and effectively for more than 20 years - and has the potential to continue to operate for at least another 20 years.
The CATS pipeline has the capacity to handle up to 48 million standard cubic metres (1.7 billion standard cubic feet) of natural gas per day. As a third party system, CATS has the contractual flexibility to take third party gas into the system quickly and easily.SAFETY RECORD
