ConocoPhillips to Install New Accommodation Facility at Ekofisk

The Ekofisk field will remain in production far longer than originally planned when the field was first put into production in 1970. This has created a need for a new accommodation facility.

The PSA has now granted ConocoPhillips, the operator at Ekofisk, consent to use the new Ekofisk 2/4 L accommodation facility. The new facility will replace the existing 2/4 H and 2/4 Q facilities that were installed in 1972 and 1978.

In addition to 552 individual cabins, the facility will contain a variety of support functions such as offices, stores, workshops, emergency preparedness centre, fire water supply, helideck and telecommunications centre.

The facility will have a gangway connection to the Ekofisk complex. It is designed for a working life of 40 years.

ConocoPhillips will be deploying the new facility during 2013.
