Background information was also gathered on the platform, which was dubbed Huldra for the TV series, and it provided the setting for the premiere that September. NRK’s head of drama, Oddvar Bull Tuhus, project manager Hallvard Blekastad, director Berit Nesheim and actor Kjersti Døvigen attended this event, when the first three episodes were shown. A total of 119 episodes were broadcast up to 1999. The series followed workers on the platform as well as the management of the fictitious NorWestOil company, focusing on such issues as romance, conflicts, enmities, jealously and infidelity.
