ConocoPhillips to Extend Lifetime of Eldfisk Facilities and Pipelines

ConocoPhillips has received consent to extend the lifetime of facilities and pipelines on the Eldfisk field.

ConocoPhillips is the operator of Eldfisk, an oil field in block 2/7 in the southern North Sea. The field was discovered in 1970 and production began in 1979.

The first development comprised three facilities with steel jackets, Eldfisk 2/7-A, 2/7-B and 2/7-FTP. Two facilities were subsequently added to the field.

ConocoPhillips has applied for consent to extend the lifetime of the first three facilities and associated subsea pipelines to the end of 2028. This is in accordance with the operator’s plans for future development of the field and the approved plan for development and operation (PDO).

The consent for extended lifetime requires the operator to have ascertained that the facilities, pipelines and equipment are always in a suitable state to be operated safely and in compliance with the regulatory requirements, Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) wrote.

The PSA finds that ConocoPhillips has performed the necessary assessments and investigations to ascertain this. In addition, the PSA has conducted audits specifically related to the application for consent.
