Holding in Johan Sverdrup reduced – redetermination possible

13feb johan sverdrup c
[2 July 2015]

The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy announced its decision today on the division of the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea between the five licensees involved.
This involves a slight reduction in the share of Petoro/the State’s Direct Financial Interest (SDFI) compared with the comprise – to which Petoro was a party – reached in February between four of the five companies. The new Petoro/SDFI holding is set at 17.36 per cent.
Jan Terje Mathisen, Petoro’s vice president responsible for Johan Sverdrup, says that the 0.48 per cent reduction is a disappointment but limited in scope.
He also notes that the ministry’s decisions refers to the agreement between the four companies responsible for the February compromise, which means that each of the partners will be able to initiate a redetermination at a later date.

        Restructuring well under way, now we need to get more out of mature fields

        sverdrup-pud“We see clearly that the oil industry is taking the challenges seriously,” says CEO Grethe Moen in connection with the presentation of Petoro’s results for the first quarter of 2015. “Costs for fields in production were cut by seven per cent in the first quarter. Real efficiency improvements to achieve a substantially lower level of costs will call for hard work over a long time to come and is a necessary correction.
