Comments from Alex Schneiter, President and CEO of Lundin Petroleum:

“I am pleased to announce another very good quarter of operational and financial performance. The Company’s production currently stands at over 120 Mboepd and as a result of continued outperformance from Edvard Grieg and an earlier startup and quicker ramp up of the pre-drilled wells at Johan Sverdrup, we are raising the production guidance for the year to between 90 and 95 Mboepd.

“A stand out moment for us was first oil from the world class Johan Sverdrup Phase 1 project, which was achieved on 5 October 2019, ahead of schedule and significantly below budget. Since then production has been ramping up ahead of expectations, as the eight pre-drilled wells are progressively commissioned and as at the end of October 2019, the field was producing above 200 Mboepd gross from five wells. It is now anticipated that all of the eight pre-drilled wells will be on production during November 2019. We will then drill the remaining two to four new wells required to achieve Phase 1 plateau production of 440 Mbopd, which is expected by summer 2020.

“Our other production assets continue to perform well, with operating costs at industry leading levels and in line with our guidance for the year. Edvard Grieg continues to exceed expectations with uptime and production above forecast. With the approval of the new infill drilling programme in 2020, we are now anticipating the gross ultimate proved plus probable reserves will be over 300 MMboe as compared to the original PDO of 186 MMboe. This is a fantastic indictment to the quality of this field.

“As an important development we’ve now sanctioned the full electrification of the Edvard Grieg facility as part of the Utsira High Area power grid, which is being developed together with Johan Sverdrup Phase 2. This project will result in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions from the field, taking Edvard Grieg Area CO2 emissions below 1 kg per barrel. This will mean that our two key assets, Edvard Grieg and Johan Sverdrup, will have emissions of below 1kg CO2 per boe, about twenty times lower than the world average and one of the lowest for any offshore operator. This is in line with the Board endorsed Sustainable Energy Strategy, which will provide the Company with the roadmap to continue to be one of the most efficient offshore oil and gas producers in terms of low emissions per barrel produced, as well as increased operating efficiency. Our aim is to continue to further reduce our carbon footprint and increase overall efficiency through new investments and innovative approaches. In this regard, the investment in a hydro power project in Norway to offset the Company’s net non-renewable electricity usage for power from shore, is in line with this strategy.

“Looking ahead to the rest of the year; we remain in the intensive ramp up period at Johan Sverdrup and development operations at Solveig and Phase 2 of Johan Sverdrup are progressing on schedule. It will also be another busy period for us with the exploration drill bit, focussed north of the Utsira High and in the North Norwegian Sea, targeting net unrisked resources of 130 MMboe for the remainder of the year and a significant exploration drilling programme is taking shape for 2020 as we continue to drive our organic growth strategy. This is the 17th quarter of production delivery on or above expectations and I look forward to updating shareholders in January 2020 on the full year 2019 progress.”

9 month report 2019

Plan finalised for full power from shore for the Edvard Grieg platform

Edvard Grieg Power from Shore

Plan finalised for full power from shore for the Edvard Grieg platform

28 October 2019

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Norway AS (Lundin Norway) and the partners, have finalised the plan to fully electrify the Lundin Norway operated Edvard Grieg platform, in conjunction with the Utsira High Area power grid; which is being developed together with the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project.

The Utsira High Area power grid which will become operational in 2022, will provide power from shore to the Johan Sverdrup, Edvard Grieg, Ivar Aasen, Gina Krog and Sleipner fields. The Edvard Grieg power from shore project involves the retirement of the existing gas turbine power generation system on the platform, installation of electric boilers to provide process heat and installation of a power cable from Johan Sverdrup to Edvard Grieg. When the facilities are all operational, Lundin Norway’s net capital investment in power from shore facilities at Edvard Grieg and Johan Sverdrup will total approximately 500 MUSD, half of which has already been spent.

The Edvard Grieg power from shore project will result in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions from the Edvard Grieg Area of approximately 3.6 million tonnes from 2022 to end of field life, taking CO2 emissions for the area to below 1 kg per barrel, about twenty times lower than the world average. Additionally, the project will reduce operating costs, reduce carbon taxes and increase operating efficiency; which will be partially offset by electricity power purchases from the grid, generated mostly from renewable sources. Overall the project will enhance the economic return from the Edvard Grieg Area, while at the same time significantly reducing CO2 emissions.

Lundin Norway is the operator of the Edvard Grieg platform with a 65 percent working interest and the partners are OMV Norge and Wintershall DEA with 20 and 15 percent working interests respectively.

Comments from Alex Schneiter, President and CEO of Lundin Petroleum:
“Full power from shore for Edvard Grieg, as part of the Utsira High power grid, will not only significantly reduce the carbon emissions from the area to below 1kg of CO2 per barrel but will also allow us to drive further value from the asset base through higher production efficiency, reduced operating costs and less carbon tax. The CO2 saved from Edvard Grieg alone, will amount to approximately 200,000 tonnes per year from 2022, in addition to the emission savings as a result of power from shore to Johan Sverdrup. The Edvard Grieg project will further solidify Lundin Petroleum’s position as a world leading low carbon emissions oil producer, with its two key assets fully or becoming fully electrified, using power from shore mainly sourced from renewable energy.”
