It was developed with a total of five platforms. Four – Eldfisk 2/7 A, 2/7 B, 2/7 FTP and 2/7 E – are tied together by bridges to form the Eldfisk Complex. The fifth, Embla 2/7 D, is located about six kilometres north-west of the Eldfisk centre.

A combined drilling, production and accommodation unit, 2/7 A came on stream in August 1979. It was linked by bridge to 2/7 FTP, where all oil and gas processing took place and which came on stream in the same month.

The 2/7 D platform, which produces the Embla field, was tied back to 2/7 FTP by pipeline. Oil and gas from Eldfisk and Embla have been piped to Ekofisk 2/4 R from 1979-98, and to 2/4 J from 1998.
