Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway has given Equinor a consent to use a facility to supply power from onshore to the Johan Sverdrup field.

Electrical power will be obtained from the onshore grid and converted to DC at a transformer station at Haugsneset close to the Kårstø facility in Rogaland. From here, a submarine cable will carry it through the Boknafjord, over the Norwegian Trench and out into the North Sea to the riser platform on the Johan Sverdrup field, where it will be converted to AC.

Equinor is the operator of the Johan Sverdrup field, located in the North Sea around 155 kilometers west of Karmøy in Rogaland county.

The field is in development and production is planned to start in 2019.

Johan Sverdrup is one of the largest offshore oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf, with estimated reserves of up to 3.1 billion barrels of oil equivalent.
