Consent to use new riser on Statfjord B

Statoil ASA (Statoil) has received consent to commence use of the new Tampen Link riser on Statfjord B.


In order to increase the overall recovery rate for the Statfjord field and simultaneously extend the field's lifetime, production will be switched from pressure-supported oil production to low pressure gas production.

The gas will be transported from Statfjord to the British sector through the Tampen Link pipeline system.
