ConocoPhillips Norway


Eldfisk is an oilfield that also contains some gas. The field was discovered in 1970, approved for development in 1975 and started production in 1979.

Eldfisk is the second largest of three producing fields in the Greater Ekofisk Area and one of the largest on the Norwegian continental shelf. The field is located in block 2/7, about 16 kilometers south of Ekofisk, not far from the UK and Danish shelves. The water depth in the area is just under 70 meters.

The reservoir consists of naturally fractured chalk (cretaceous) located at depths of 2700-2900 meters. The Eldfisk field is covered by production license (PL) 018. ConocoPhillips is the operator with an ownership interest of 35.11 percent.

Eldfisk is developed with a total of five platforms. Four of them are connected with bridges (the Eldfisk Complex), while the fifth, Eldfisk 2/7 Bravo, is located about six kilometers northwest of the Eldfisk Complex​​​​​​​.

The Eldfisk II project will contribute to continued production towards 2050. Read more in this brochure.

The Eldfisk Complex

The Eldfisk Complex consists of the Eldfisk 2/7 A, Eldfisk 2/7 FTP, Eldfisk 2/7 E and Eldfisk 2/7 S platforms.


Eldfisk 2/7 A

Eldfisk 2/7 A is a well head platform where the production is sent to Eldfisk 2/7 S for processing and export to Ekofisk 2/4 J.  There are also facilities for well service at the Eldfisk 2/7 A platform.


Eldfisk 2/7 FTP

Eldfisk 2/7 FTP is has been converted to a bridge support platform. Production from Eldfisk 2/7 A is transported in a pipeline via Eldfisk 2/7 FTP to Eldfisk 2/7 E and further to 2/7 S. 


Eldfisk 2/7 E

Eldfisk 2/7 E is a water injection platform with a bridge connection to Eldfisk 2/7 FTP and Eldfisk 2/7 S. The platform was installed in 1999.

About half of the water is injected into the Eldfisk reservoir under high pressure. The rest is transported through a 24 kilometer pipeline to the Ekofisk 2/4 K water injection platform for injection on Ekofisk.


Eldfisk 2/7 S

The integrated platform Eldfisk 2/7 S was installed at the Eldfisk Complex in 2014. The platform contains wellhead and process facilities and an accommodation unit with 154 cabins. 

Production from the Eldfisk Complex and Embla is received at Eldfisk 2/7 S before oil and gas is transported in pipelines to the Ekofisk Complex.

The Eldfisk 2/7 S platform started production in January 2015.
