Norwegians appraise Sverdrup-share at 10 billion NOK

The Norwegian company, Det Norske Oljeselskap, believes that the company’s share of the Johan Sverdrup field could be more than 10 billion Norwegian kroner worth after taxes. That could mean good news for Maersk Oil, who also has a share of a license in the field.

More than 10 billion Danish kroner after taxes. That is the number which the Norwegian company Det Norske Oljeselskap’s share of the Johan Sverdrup oil field could be worth in the long term. This is the estimation made by the CEO of Det Norske Oljeselskap Erik Haugane in an interview with the Norwegian news agency TDN Finans.

The subsidiary of A.P. Moeller – Maersk, Maersk Oil, could end up gaining about as big a share of the large Norwegian oil field as Det Norske Oljeselskap. The Johan Sverdrup field stretches across two licenses, and while the Norwegians own 20 percent of one field (PL265), Maersk Oil controls 20 percent of the other (PL501).
