A total of 4.2 billion barrels had then been lifted from the field since Einar Rasmussen’s Polytraveller took on the first cargo in November 1979.
This meant that a tanker had sailed from Statfjord on seven out of every 10 days after it came on stream. They had loaded an average of 840 000 barrels per consignment.
