Johan Sverdrup Will Be Powered From Land, Statoil Reassures

After some media today raised uncertainty raised as to whether the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea will receive electricity from land, Statoil reassured the public that it will stick to the plan.

 “We are not considering any other solutions for the Johan Sverdrup field than land-based power supply,” says Øyvind Reinertsen, senior vice president for the Johan Sverdrup field.

“The project and the licensees based their concept assessment on power supply from land at an early stage, and we have not considered any other options.”

The project is soon to choose the concept and development solution, covering installations, well solutions, export solutions and a solution for power supply from land based on technical and financial assessments.

“As operator, Statoil will present its recommendations to the licence owners based on studies. Then the licence owners will choose a solution based on regulatory requirements. We will present the chosen solution when the licence owners have made their decision,” says Reinertsen.
