NOGAT (Northern Offshore Gas Transport) is a natural gas pipeline system which connects Dutch continental shelf with an onshore gas plant and terminal at Den Helder, the Netherlands. The system has been operational since 1992.[1] The Danish continental shelf pipeline system is connected to the NOGAT through the Tyra West – F3 pipeline and the German continental shelf pipeline system is connected to the NOGAT through A6-F3 pipeline.[2][3]

NOGAT is owned by NOGAT BV, in which the 45% interest is held by Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN), a Dutch state-owned company, 48.3% is owned by GDF Suez, 5% by Total S.A. and 1.8% by Venture Production.[3][4][5] The pipeline was originally operated by Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij BV (NAM), but after acquiring the NAM's stake in the pipeline, GDF Suez took over the operator's function.[4][5]
