Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) is pleased to announce that the Johan Sverdrup partnership has decided to proceed with (DG2) Phase 2 of the Johan Sverdrup development.

Phase 1 of Johan Sverdrup is under development with first oil scheduled for late 2019. The partners will now proceed with maturing Phase 2 for the investment decision and submission of the plan for development and operations (PDO) in the second half of 2018. Phase 2 is scheduled to come onstream in 2022.

The breakeven price for the full field development is now less than USD 25 per barrel with a total resource estimate for the Johan Sverdrup field of between 2.0 and 3.0 billion barrels of oil equivalents.

Phase 1 of the development consists of a field centre consisting of four platforms on the field. Phase 2 builds on this infrastructure, adding another processing platform to the field centre. This will result in a processing capacity for the full field of 660,000 barrels of oil per day.

The current estimated capital cost for Phase 1 is NOK 97 billion and for Phase 2 is in the range of between NOK 40 and 55 billion.
