Consent for extended operation of Gullfaks C

Equinor has received consent to extend the life of the Gullfaks C facility and associated pipelines.


Equinor is the operator of the Gullfaks field, which is situated in block 34/10 in the Tampen area of the northern North Sea. Gullfaks has been developed using three integrated processing, drilling and accommodation facilities with concrete jackets and steel decks (Gullfaks A, B and C).

Equinor applied for consent to extend the operating life to 30 June 2036.

The consent for extended operating life is contingent on the operator having ascertained that the facilities, pipelines and equipment are in a state that permits them to always be operated safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements.

We find that Equinor has carried out the necessary assessments and investigations to ascertain this.

We have now given Equinor the consent applied for.
