The Johan Sverdrup Field is located in the North Sea, approx. 160 km west of Stavanger operated by Statoil. The field has an extent of approx. 200 km², and the water depth in the area is 110-120 m. Due to the size of the field, Johan Sverdrup will be expanded in several phases, where the first phase of development (phase 1) comprises a field center consisting of 4 platforms, 3 seabed installations connected to the field center, oil and gas export pipelines, and power transmission country.
Johan Sverdrup Phase 2, involves increasing process capacity in the field by building a new process platform (P2), connecting production facilities to the Avaldsnes, Kvitsøy and Geitungen satellite areas as well as power from land to Utsira Hill. The expansion is entitled to expand the production capacity of the field from 440,000 to 660,000 barrels of oil per day after startup in 2022. The Project’s overall value is around EUR 1,13b.
