The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has inspected the pipeline and is content that the gas from the KM8 well can be safely conveyed within the pipeline, under the current risk management systems employed by Third Energy. If there is any breach of the health and safety regulations resulting in formal enforcement action, HSE will make this public.
