The 2/4 Tank (photo) was closed in 1998 when Ekofisk II started operations. About two years later the electrical supply and other auxiliary systems were disconnected. Periodic inspections have been conducted.
According to ConocoPhillips there is no damage to the Tank or secondary structure. Necessary maintenance and repairs have been carried out to ensure access.
Necessary auxiliary and safety systems will be established so that the cleaning contractor can perform the work in a safe manner.
Personnel from the operating company with experience from previous work on the 2/4 Tank will be in charge of this work.
