The Statfjord Unit Operating Committee (SUOC), the decision-making body for the field, approved plans on 5 August 1977 for Statfjord B as a platform able to process 180 000 barrels per day. It was resolved on 29 November to apply to the NPD for permission to build such a structure. The application, accompanied by a separate safety study, was submitted on 1 December.
