Ekofisk has been nicknamed "Norway's big Christmas present". The final exploration well in block 2/4 was plugged on 23 December 1969 in the knowledge that a major discovery had been made.

Production began from the field two years later. Under a mutual swap agreement between Phillips Petroleum Company and Petronord, the latter had a 20 per cent holding in Ekofisk. The field was still the largest contributor to Total’s overall production in 2005, accounting for 45 per cent of the total volume.[REMOVE]Fotnote: Total’sannualreport2005
