Statoil Picked to Operate Johan Sverdrup Field
OSLO, Nov 28 (Reuters) – Norway's Statoil will operate the giant Johan Sverdrup oil field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, Statoil said on Friday, in a decision fully expected by markets.
The Sverdrup field lies across several licences, which are operated by Statoil and Lundin Petroleum. However, Lundin has repeatedly said that Statoil should be the operator given its experience in running such a large project.
Sverdrup could hold up to 2.9 billion barrels of oil equivalents and full development could cost up to 220 billion crowns ($31.5 billion).
Other shareholders in Sverdrup include A.P. Moller-Maersk , Det Norske and state holding firm Petoro.
