The Statfjord B platform
Statfjord B is an integrated production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) platform which stands in 145 metres of water at the southern end of the field. The installation comprises a four-shaft Condeep concrete gravity base structure (GBS), built by Norwegian Contractors, and a steel topside assembled and outfitted by Moss Rosenberg Verft’s yard.
Tow-out of Statfjord B
Statfjord B began its journey out to the field from the mating site at Vats north of Stavanger early on 1 August 1981. The world’s biggest tow to date moved silently through the darkness and rain clouds. The voyage began an hour ahead of schedule because the mooring chains were cut more quickly than expected.
