This production level equals 6 to 7% percent of the daily European oil consumption.

Marianne Bjelland, Vice President Exploration and Production for Johan Sverdrup in Equinor, said: “This process capacity test at Johan Sverdrup confirms technically very robust facilities and was safely performed with no unwanted incidents. This is an important milestone, and the result of systematic and targeted efforts.”

Equinor and partners Aker BP, Petoro and TotalEnergies aim to maintain production levels of oil from the field up towards this level going forward.

In addition, Johan Sverdrup produces 31 500 boe of gas per day.
