And connecting the following platforms:

The cable system is owned by Tampnet AS.
Installation started in 1998 and the cable was ready for service in 1999 with an initial capacity of a STM-16 system of 2.5 Gbit/s. Later, Enitel added a 16x10 Gbit/s wavelength-division multiplexing system. The cable contains 24 optical fibers.
NorSea Com-1 has a cable length of about 750 km between Draupner and Lowestoft. Between Draupner and Kårstø (ca 200 km) the system uses fibers in Equinor's submarine cable.
The Tampnet cable was formerly connected to the Murdoch MD installation. The Murdoch field ceased production in 2018 when the Theddlethorpe gas terminal was closed. The cable was subsequently disconnected from MD prior to the installation being removed. The cable was rerouted and remains operational.
