Ekofisk 2/4 VA

Ekofisk 2/4 VA is a seabed unit for water injection, and it is remotely operated from a control room in one of the company's integrated operations centres in the main office in Tananger.

The injection water comes from Ekofisk 2/4 K and is sent 4.1 kilometers through a pipeline before being injected under high pressure at the wellhead, around 70 meters below sea level.

The injection capacity is 120,000 barrels of water per day, divided among eight injection wells.

Ekofisk 2/4 VA came into operation in 2010.
