Production from Johan Sverdrup

The Johan Sverdrup conventional oil field recovered 12.13% of its total recoverable reserves, with peak production expected in 2026. The peak production will approximately 708.53 thousand bpd of crude oil and condensate, 137.00 Mmcfd of natural gas and 23.61 thousand bpd of natural gas liquids. Based on economic assumptions, production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2082. The field currently accounts for approximately 13% of the country’s daily output.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 4,205.54 Mmboe, comprised of 3,946.66 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate, 764.09 bcf of natural gas reserves and 131.52 Mmbbl of natural gas liquid reserves. Johan Sverdrup conventional oil field reserves accounts 0.93% of total remaining reserves of producing conventional oil fields globally.
