First oil from Johan Sverdrup to Mongstad

Oil from the giant Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea has arrived at the Mongstad plant north of Bergen.

“This is a great day for Equinor and the Johan Sverdrup partnership, consisting of Lundin Norway, Petoro, Aker BP and Total. First oil to Mongstad only a few days after production start confirms that the field is producing well," says Irene Rummelhoff, executive vice president for Marketing, Midstream & Processing (MMP) in Equinor.

Oil is piped from the North Sea Johan Sverdrup field, a distance of 283 kilometres. At the Mongstad complex the oil is stored in caverns and prepared for shipping to markets all over the world.

The first cargo is expected to leave for customers in Asia this week, and contains one million barrels with a market value of around USD 60 million, or more than half a billion NOK at the current oil price. Future cargoes are expected to contain between 600,000 and 2 million barrels.

As Johan Sverdrup receives power from shore, oil will be produced with record-low climate gas emissions of less than one kilogram of CO2 per barrel.

The Mongstad plant is expected to receive up to 440,000 barrels of oil per day from Johan Sverdrup when the first development phase reaches peak production. When the second phase is completed in 2022, Mongstad will receive up to 660,000 barrels of oil per day.
