Design for operation and maintenance of the Johan Sverdrup oil and gas field

By José Vazquez Taboada


Student paper in Petroleum engineeringThe Johan Sverdrup field was discovered in 2010, formed by three blocks (PL 501, PL 265 and PL 502) on the North Sea, with an estimated of reserves between 1.8 billion to 2.8 billion Barrels of Oil, so assessing the total risk for this huge field development is crucial, as well as the understanding of the development of each phase. The launched Project, is structured by the consortium Group (Statoil ASA, Lundin Norway ASA, Maersk Oil ASA, Petoro AS and DNV GL AS). From Operation and Maintenance perspective, the Project carries critical operations and challenges in the long term (Interfaces, Power Network system, Pipeline Net Installation….etc) to be cover up through appropriate preventive maintenance management and control, during the estimated entered Life Cycle of the field(50 years)
