The Johan Sverdrup field is on the Utsira High in the central part of the North Sea, 65 kilometres northeast of Sleipner. Water depth in the area is 110-120 metres. Johan Sverdrup was discovered in 2010 and the plan for development and operation (PDO) for Phase I was approved in 2015. The development solution for the first development phase is a field centre with four specialised platforms: living quarters, process, drilling and riser facilities.
The field is under development. Production start-up is scheduled for late 2019.
The PDO for Phase II was submitted in August 2018. The development solution for the second phase comprises a process platform and five subsea templates.
