Statfjord East on stream
The Statfjord East satellite was developed with subsea templates installed in 150-190 metres of water and tied back to the C platform.
Two of the templates, Statfjord East-L and Statfjord East-M, were for production, while Statfjord East-K was dedicated to water injection. Each template had four well slots. The wellstream is carried in two flowlines to Statfjord C for processing, storage and export. Modifications were made to the platform to handle output from both Statfjord East and North.
