The Frigg Field straddles the boundary between the Norwegian and British sectors, and is jointly owned by both countries. The project documented its 30 years of activity. As companies from both countries shared responsibility, the project has been divided along similar lines. The project began in 2005 and was completed in March 2008.


The Frigg Field was documented by teams from the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, the Stavanger regional office of The National Archives of Norway, and the National Library of Norway. The field was operated as a single entity from Stavanger, even though the platforms were in both British and Norwegian waters.


The University of Aberdeen recorded the gas compression platform MCP-01, the initial development phases of the two 32 inch gas pipelines from the Frigg Field, and the St Fergus Gas Terminal in Aberdeenshire.
