GULLFAKS is an oil and gas field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea operated by Statoil
Statoil
. It was discovered in 1978, in block 34/10, at a water depth of 130-230 meters. The initial recoverable reserve is 2.1 billion barrels (330×10^6 m3), and the remaining recoverable reserve in 2004 is 234 million barrels (37.2×10^6 m3). This oil field reached peak production in 2001 at 180,000 barrels per day (29,000 m3/d). It has satellite fields Gullfaks South, Rimfaks, Skinfaks and Gullveig.

Natural Gas
NATURAL GAS is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas mixture consisting primarily of methane , but commonly including varying amounts of other higher alkanes , and sometimes a small percentage of carbon dioxide , nitrogen , hydrogen sulfide , or helium . It is formed when layers of decomposing plant and animal matter are exposed to intense heat and pressure under the surface of the Earth over millions of years. The energy that the plants originally obtained from the sun is stored in the form of chemical bonds in the gas. Natural gas
Natural gas
is a fossil fuel used as a source of energy for heating, cooking, and electricity generation. It is also used as fuel for vehicles and as a chemical feedstock in the manufacture of plastics and other commercially important organic chemicals . Fossil fuel based natural gas is a non-renewable resource

Ekofisk Oil Field
EKOFISK is an oil field in block 2/4 of the Norwegian sector of the North Sea about 320 km (200 mi) southwest of Stavanger . Discovered in 1969 by Phillips Petroleum Company , it remains one of the most important oil fields in the North Sea. This was the first discovery of oil after the drilling of over 200 exploration wells in the North Sea "triggered" by the Groningen gas field discovery. In 1971, Phillips started producing directly to tankers from four subsea wells. Oil production is planned to continue until at least 2050. Ekofisk reservoir consists of Cod, Ekofisk, West Ekofisk, Tor, Albuskjell, Eldfisk, Edda and Embla oil fields. The Ekofisk Center is a vast complex of platforms and structures creating a transportation hub also for surrounding fields such as Valhall , Hod, Gyda , Ula , Statfjord , Heimdal , Tommeliten and Gullfaks . The whole complex consists of 29 platforms. Produced oil is transported by the Norpipe oil pipeline to the Teesside Refinery in England

Heimdal Gas Field
HEIMDAL (Norwegian : Heimdalfeltet) is an offshore natural gas field in the North Sea located 212 kilometres (132 mi) northwest of the Stavanger , Norway. Heimdal serves as a connection hub for processing and distribution of natural gas from satellite fields. The field was discovered in 1972. The depth of the sea at location is 120 metres (390 ft). The field was developed with an integrated drilling, production and accommodation facility with a steel jacket including a riser facility in 1999. The gas from the field is transported to Kårstø as well as to St. Fergus in Scotland . After construction of the Heimdal gas center, a new gas pipeline was connected to the existing one from Frigg gas field to St. Fergus. The gas is also transported to Grane oil field for gas injection . The condensate is sent by pipeline to Brae oilfield . Heimdal also gets gas from the Oseberg field center for further transportation through Statpipe system
