The Gullfaks Field is located in the central part of the East Shetland Basin in the Northern North Sea and was discovered in 1979. The StatoilHydro operated field has been developed with three Condeep gravity-based concrete structures and started production in December 1986. The field was the first major development by an all-Norwegian consortium. Peak production of over 600,000 bbl/day of oil was achieved in 1994, with the recovery factor currently approaching 60%.
