The Skinfaks and Rimfaks structures are located in the Tampen area of the North Sea, about 15 km south-west of the Gullfaks field. The ocean depth in the area is approximately 140 meters. Statoil is operator for the field, which is developed with an underwater facility connected to the Gullfaks C facility.
The development includes a subsea template with four slots and one satellite, four pipelines and two umbilicals.
Modifications on Gullfaks A and C have also been carried out. The development project also involves drilling of five wells.
The planned start-up date for the facility is 20 December 2006.
