Oseberg is an oil field in the northern part of the North Sea, lying in around 100 metres of water. Oseberg has been developed in several stages. Oseberg C is in the north of the field, around 10 km north of the Oseberg field centre. It is an integrated production, drilling and accommodation facility erected on a steel jacket. Stabilised oil is sent to the Sture terminal via the field centre. From some of the wells, oil is sent through a multiphase pipeline to the field centre for processing.

The PDO for Oseberg C was approved in January 1988 and production began in December 1991.
