Located in 68 metres of water, the Eldfisk reservoir lies about 16 kilometres south of the Ekofisk Complex. Five platforms are located on the field – 2/7 A, 2/7 B, 2/7 FTP, 2/7 E and 2/7 S.

The Embla 2/7 D facility is tied back to 2/7 S by a flowline, and the combined output from the two fields is piped away – originally to Ekofisk 2/4 R, and then to Ekofisk 2/4 J from 1998.

Oil and gas were received on 2/7 FTP via a bridge from 2/7 A. While the oil was piped to Ekofisk, the gas had to pass through a compressor to increase its pressure and a glycol facility for dehydration before pipeline transport to Ekofisk.

The steel jacket (support structure) was fabricated by UIE at St Wandrille in France, while the topsides came from Dragados y Construcciones in Spain.

Eldfisk 2/7 S took over 2/7 FTP’s functions in 2015 when the latter was converted to a bridge support.
