Johan Sverdrup Field Starts Up in the North Sea

The production from Phase 1 of the giant Johan Sverdrup field has started – more than two months ahead of schedule and with a cost reduced by more than 30%. The total investment is $10.5 billion and plateau production is 440,000 barrels per day. Johan Sverdrup is operated by Equinor (42.6267%), alongside Lundin Norway (20%), Petoro (17.36%), Aker BP (11.5733%) and Total (8.44%).

“Johan Sverdrup is one of the major developments that were added to Total’s portfolio through the value adding acquisition of Maersk Oil in 2018. It is one of the largest oil fields of the Norwegian Continental Shelf and illustrates our ongoing commitment to Norway – a country that represents about 8% of Total’s global annual production – and to the North Sea where we are the second largest operator,” said Arnaud Breuillac, President Exploration & Production of Total. ”

Located 150 kilometers off the Norwegian coast, Johan Sverdrup’s total recoverable reserves amount to 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Phase II of the project is already under development and is expected to increase production capacity to 660,000 barrels per day by the end of 2022.
Johan Sverdrup ranks among the world top three offshore projects in terms of carbon emission efficiency. With well below 1 kg of CO2 emitted per barrel, emissions savings are largely due to the electric supply from shore compared with traditional offshore gas turbines.
