Albuskjell 2/4 F comes on stream

person by the Norwegian Petroleum Museum
The Albuskjell 2/4 F platform was very similar to Albuskjell 1/6 A, combining drilling, production and accommodation. It stood in 71 metres of water 13 kilometres west of the Ekofisk Complex and roughly eight from 1/6 A. A separate flare stack was linked by a bridge.

Producing from 11 wells, the platform’s process facilities included a three-phase separator (12.2 x 2.9 metres) for gas, oil and water and a test separator (4.7 x 1.7 metres).

In addition came a glycol gas dehydrator (11.5 x 3.2 metres) with glycol recovery, a filter for produced condensate and a fiscal metering station for oil and gas.

Production from 2/4 F was blended with the respective streams from Albuskjell 1/6 A for onward export to 2/4 R via oil and gas pipelines with diameters of 18 and 24 inches respectively. Installed in 1977, 2/4 F came on stream in July 1979. Its accommodation was replaced and expanded to 96 beds in 1983. Production ceased in 1990, with derrick and drilling modules removed in 1997.
