21 August 2015: Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy approves first phase of Johan Sverdrup Field

21 August 2015

The plan for development and operation (PDO) for the Statoil-operated Johan Sverdrup field, phase one, was approved by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. The Johan Sverdrup oil field will be developed in several phases. Phase one consists of four bridge-linked platforms, in addition to three subsea water injection templates.

Further, the associated plans for installation and operation for transportation pipelines and power supply from shore were approved.

Project activities will now be stepped up, and more contracts will be awarded in the autumn. Recently, the first piece of the Johan Sverdrup development, the pre-drilling template, was installed on the field in the North Sea

The ambition is a recovery rate of 70%, allowing for advanced technology for increased oil recovery in future phases. The phase one development has a production capacity in the range of 315,000-380,000 barrels per day. First oil is planned for late 2019.

The Johan Sverdrup partnership consists of Statoil, Lundin Norway, Petoro, Det norske oljeselskap and Maersk Oil.
