Equinor has confirmed that its Johan Sverdrup oil field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea has the potential for increased production capacity, allowing the company to ramp up production from the field. The field currently has a recoverable volume of 2.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent, making it the third-largest oil field on the Norwegian continental shelf.

In a recent capacity test, the Johan Sverdrup field achieved record production of 755,000 barrels of oil per day, making it a significant contributor to the region’s energy supply. Equinor, along with partners Aker BP, Petoro and TotalEnergies, now intends to maintain oil production at or near this increased capacity. Additionally, Johan Sverdrup contributes around 31,500 barrels of oil equivalent of gas per day and has low carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions estimated to be 80-90% below the global average.
