This oil field lies in block 34/7 in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea, and came on stream in 1994.

In addition to the main Tordis structure, the development embraces the Tordis East (1998), Borg (1999) and Tordis South East (2001) fields.

These discoveries have all been developed with subsea installations. Water depth is roughly 200 metres.

Water injection is used to maintain pressure in the reservoirs.

The well stream from Tordis is routed through two pipelines to the Gullfaks C platform 10 kilometers away for processing, storage and export.

The former Saga Petroleum company became operator for licence PL 089 when the licence was awarded in 1984.

Norsk Hydro took over operatorship after acquiring Saga in 1999.

Statoil took over operatorship on 1 January 2003.
