As Johan Sverdrup is a field with high profitability and low CO₂ emissions, a production rise is great news.“The field has low operating costs, providing revenue for the companies and Norwegian society, even in periods with low prices.”Upon completion of Phase 2, the Johan Sverdrup field production capacity is expected to increase to around 720,000 barrels of oil per day.Claimed to be the third largest oil field on the Norwegian continental shelf, the field is using water injection to secure high reserves recovery as well as to maintain production at a high level.Johan Sverdrup operations vice-president Rune Nedregaard said: “Based on the positive results of the capacity test where we produced at rates of over 500,000 barrels of oil per day, we are now working on solutions to increase the water injection capacity, which should allow us to further increase daily production capacity beyond this level by mid-2021.”

Grace Mitchell signed with the University of Nebraska in 2015.Snipes, who said she was wavering between FIU and Rice, is expected to formally sign for the Golden Panthers on National Signing Day on Nov. 9, 2016.â€œWhen they (FIU) started recruiting me, they were supportive in every way on and off the court and that was a major thing for me,â€ Snipes said. â€œWhen I went up there for my official visit, I enjoyed the girls and the campus. So thatâ€™s when I knew Iâ€™d be great at FIU.â€FIU is a member of Conference USA.

They have been great to me since April.â€Snipes, a 5-11, senior, is expected to be a four-year starter when she starts this season for the Crusaders.
