Description

Location: DK - Denmark
This dataset describes the transport needed for an average export of Norwegian natural gas (expressed in tkm). Gas losses and emissions during seasonal storage are included. An average distance of 1400 km is estimated for the export, of which are 650 km offshore pipeline.
Characteristics are based on the ecoinvent report v2 'Erdgas' from 2007: HV; 44.21 MJ/m-3; density, 0.84 kg/m-3, 0.719 kg CH4/m-3, 0.013 kg CO2/m-3
Undefined unit processes (UPRs) are the unlinked, multi-product activity datasets that form the basis for all of the system models available in the ecoinvent database. This is the way the datasets are obtained and entered into the database by the data providers. These activity datasets are useful for investigating the environmental impacts of a specific activity (gate-to-gate), without regard to its upstream or downstream impacts.

Technology

The distance to the different countries is based on rough estimates using maps of natural gas pipeline infrastructure.
