Oseberg Field Center
The Oseberg field includes three platforms, Oseberg A, B and D, connected to one another with bridges, in the south part of the Oseberg field, and the Oseberg C platform, which lies 14 kilometers north of Oseberg A, B and D (collectively referred to as the Oseberg Field Center) which is located in the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea.
Oseberg A is a concrete base platform with process equipment and living quarters, while Oseberg B sits atop a steel jacket and has drilling, production and injection equipment.
Oseberg D is a steel platform with gas processing and export equipment. It was connected to the Field Center with a bridge in 1999. Oseberg C is an integrated drilling, accommodation and production platform with a steel jacket.
Gas export started from the Oseberg Field Center on October 1, 2000. This represented the beginning of a new era for the Oseberg field and for Hydro as an offshore operator.
