Statoil will cooperate closely with its partners in order to secure the best possible utilisation of the resources on Johan Sverdrup. The goal is to achieve a recovery factor of at least 70% from the field.

The field development plan includes a field centre that will carry out the most important functions while also allowing for the subsequent connection of various installations during the development’s different phases.
