With expected resource base of 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalents, Johan Sverdrup is one of the most important industrial projects in Norway in the next 50 years. Peak production is estimated to be 660,000 barrels of oil per day.
The enormous field, which is located on the Utsira Height, about 160 km west of Stavanger, will constitute 25 % of all Norwegian petroleum production when taken into operation, and the development and operation will generate revenue and provide jobs for coming generations. During 2017, more than 14,000 people around the world contributed to the development.
The water depth is about 120 meters and the reservoir is located at a depth of 1,900 meters. The oil will be piped to the Mongstad terminal in Hordaland, and the gas will be transported to the Kårstø processing plant in North Rogaland. Production start is planned for 2019 for phase one and 2022 for phase two.
The field will be operated by electrical power generated onshore, reducing offshore emissions of climate gases by up to 90 % compared to a standard development utilizing gas turbines.
The international energy company Equinor selected us for the delivery of the high-voltage cable system that is to supply power from shore to the offshore oil field.
