Re litera c on injection
Re litera d on facility
It is emphasized that, among other things, detached well structures of various types that are placed on the seabed with, among other things, wellhead, christmas tree and well template, fall under the facility concept. The same applies to equipment in the well and the well itself. That is, unless otherwise stated in the context, requirements for facilities will also apply to this equipment, etc.
By pipelines is meant pipelines for the transport of CO2 and other fluids with associated safety systems, valves, locks, corrosion protection systems and other equipment.
