  • Statfjord is an oil field straddling the border between the Norwegian and British sectors in the Tampen area. The water depth in the area is 150 metres.
  • The field has been developed with three fully integrated facilities: Statfjord A, Statfjord B and Statfjord C.
  • The satellite fields Statfjord Øst, Statfjord Nord and Sygna have a separate inlet separator on Statfjord C. The PDO for Statfjord Late Life was approved in June 2005.
  • Stabilised oil is stored in storage cells at each facility. Oil is loaded onto tankers from one of the two oil loading systems at the field.
  • From 2007, gas is exported through Tampen Link, which is routed via the Far North Liquids And Associated Gas System (Flags) Pipeline to the United Kingdom
  • Previously, gas was exported via the Statpipe Gas Pipeline to Norway
