Fossil Energy – Johan Sverdrup
This week a successful capacity test has been performed confirming that the Johan Sverdrup field can produce up to 755,000 barrels of oil per day.
During a capacity test the field reached a record-high production level of 755,000 barrels of oil per day.
This equals six to seven percent of the daily European oil consumption.
“This process capacity test at Johan Sverdrup confirms technically very robust facilities and was safely performed with no unwanted incidents. This is an important milestone, and the result of systematic and targeted efforts,” says Marianne Bjelland, vice president Exploration and Production for Johan Sverdrup in Equinor.
In addition, Johan Sverdrup produces 31,500 barrels of oil equivalents of gas per day.
