JOHAN SVERDRUP PHASE 2:
In May 2019, Norwegian authorities gave the formal approval to the second phase of the development of the giant field Johan Sverdrup. Construction of the field’s fifth platform is beginning in Haugesund.
The new processing platform, which will be the second of its kind at the field centre, will make for a total of five platforms when the development is completed.
Phase 2 from 2022
When the second processing platform comes into operation in 2022, production capacity is expected to increase to 720,000 barrels per day, while the second processing platform will also provide space for an onshore electrical power inverter.
Although Johan Sverdrup is already powered from shore, in 2022 the field will also distribute power to other platforms at Utsira High, including Edvard Grieg, Ivar Aasen and Gina Krog.
