Offshore staff

OSLO, NorwayConocoPhillips has consent from Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway to extend the service lives of facilities and pipelines on the Eldfisk oil field in the southern Norwegian North Sea.

Eldfisk, in block 2/7, entered production in 1979. The initial development comprised three platforms with steel jackets: Eldfisk 2/7-A, 2/7-B, and 2/7-FTP.

PSA has approved an extension for these facilities and the associated subsea pipelines to end-2028, in accordance with ConocoPhillips’ plans for future development of the field and the approved plan for development and operation.

In the Norwegian Sea, PSA has authorized Statoil to commission modifications at the Kristin and Tyrihans production facilities related to the subsea tie-in of Wintershall’s Maria oil and gas field.

Kristin is a gas/condensate field on the Haltenbanken region that produces through subsea equipment connected to a semisubmersible processing platform. Tyrihans’ wellstream is also exported to this installation.
