The Johan Sverdrup appraisal drilling programme in PL501 (2 wells + 2 sidetracks), where Lundin Petroleum is operator, coupled with Statoil's discovery well and subsequent appraisal well in PL265, has confirmed that the thickness and quality of the Jurassic reservoir is better than previously assumed. As a result, Lundin Petroleum has increased the contingent resource range for the Johan Sverdrup discovery in PL501 to between 800 million and 1.8 billion barrels of gross recoverable oil. Statoil has announced a contingent resource range of 900 million to 1.5 billion barrels of gross recoverable oil for the Johan Sverdrup discovery in PL265. The Johan Sverdrup discovery is now estimated to contain gross contingent resources of between 1.7 and 3.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil. This makes the discovery one of the five largest discoveries ever made on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, the largest discovery since the mid 1980s and the largest exploration find in the world in 2011. Furthermore the discovery is located in 115 metres of water, in a reservoir with excellent characterstics and oil quality, at a depth of less than 2,000 metres and close to existing infrastructure with spare capacity.
