Statoil targeting average 70% recovery oil in Johan Sverdrup field in Norwegian continental shelf

7 May 2014

Statoil executive vice president for its North American operations Bill Maloney said that the company has set a goal of recovering an average of 70% of the oil in its Johan Sverdrup field in the Norwegian continental shelf.

We’ve set a very large goal for oil recovery for Johan Sverdrup. With the right technology and ingenuity, we believe 70% is achievable over the life of the field for this giant development in Norway. While every situation is unique, we believe that the right technology can shift the economics in the right way.

—Bill Maloney

Statoil has steadily improved the recovery rates and longevity of the large fields it develops. Maloney noted that Statoil has been able to change the economic picture in many of its international operations, including Brazil with the application of technology in its heavy oil offshore fields.

The typical expected recovery rate for Gulf of Mexico Paleogene Wilcox fields is 6-10%, although production in these fields is in early days and data is limited. Statoil believes that with both cost-efficient technology and policies that encourage long-term investment, operators may be able to double this rate to 20% or higher, which means longer field life and more efficient resource management.
