Ekofisk 2/4 Z

Ekofisk 2/4 Z is a wellhead platform in the Ekofisk Complex with 36 well slots, 35 of which are for production and one is dedicated to the reinjection of cuttings. The wells will be drilled by a jack up drilling rig placed next to the 2/4 Z-platform.

The platform is designed and constructed to carry out multiple simultaneous operations, such as production, drilling, well maintenance and well intervention activities.

The platform is monitored and remotely operated from the central control room on the 2/4 J platform, but it is also ready to be monitored and controlled from the company’s onshore operations center in Tananger. The platform was installed during the summer of 2013 and is connected to the Ekofisk complex by bridge.

The platform started operation in October 2013.
