HC Deb 05 March 1981 vol 1000 c153W
Mr. Rowlands

asked the Secretary of State for Energy when he now expects to receive firm proposals for the financing of a gas-gathering pipeline from the consortia; and when he expects work to begin on the gathering pipeline.

Mr. Gray

A great deal of work on the pipeline, including the conceptual engineering designs offshore and for the St. Fergus terminal, has already been done. On financing, the gas-gathering organising group expects to receive proposals fairly soon.
