ConocoPhillips receives consent to use the 2/4 Z facility

ConocoPhillips Skandinavia AS has received consent to use the Ekofisk 2/4 Z facility on the Ekofisk field.

The Ekofisk field will remain in production far longer than originally planned when the field was first put into production in 1970. This has created a need for a new production facility, Ekofisk 2/4 Z.

Ekofisk 2/4 Z is a wellhead facility which will be connected by a gangway to the Ekofisk Complex, where the wellstream will be processed. This new facility is designed for a working life of 40 years.

ConocoPhillips, the operator at Ekofisk, is planning 36 wells for the facility. The wells are to be drilled using a jack-up facility that will be installed adjacent to the wellhead facility during the drilling phase. ConocoPhillips will apply for separate consent for use of the drilling facility before drilling starts.
