First Valhall oil reaches Ekofisk
The Valhall field began oil production, with its output piped to the Ekofisk 2/4 G riser platform for onward transport to Teesside.
Located 35 kilometres to the south-east, the field was the first outside the Greater Ekofisk Area to be tied into the Ekofisk system. Gas from Valhall was also eventually piped to Ekofisk, where it and the oil were metered and separated before being sent on to Teesside and Emden.[REMOVE]Fotnote:  News Brief, September 1981.

The Bravo Blow out
The “abandon platform” alarm sounded on Ekofisk 2/4 B – the Bravo installation – at 22.00 on Friday 22 April 1977. An uncontrolled escape of oil and gas had begun in well B-14. Large quantities of oil and gas spurted five-six metres into the air before falling into the sea. What should not have happened had occurred. The question was how this could be possible.
