The North Sea Johan Sverdrup field expects to reach plateau production for the first phase in early May, earlier than anticipated. Due to higher plant capacity, plateau production will increase from around 440,000 barrels of oil per day to around 470,000 barrels per day.
The plan for development and operation (PDO) of the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development was formally approved by Norwegian authorities on 15 May.
In late August, Equinor and the Johan Sverdrup partnership of Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP and Total, submitted their development plan for the second phase of the project to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy. With an increased resource estimate and lower investment costs, the full field development of Johan Sverdrup will contribute to even greater value creation.
