How the oil crisis gave Norway’s giant field a $10 billion boost

The Johan Sverdrup drilling platform, operated by Equinor ASA, center, and the Haven jack-up accommodation rig, operated by Jacktel AS, a unit of Master Marine AS, stand in the Johan Sverdrup offshore oil field, about 160 kilometers (100 miles) west of Norway’s oil capital, Stavanger, Norway, on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018. When Sverdrup reaches maximum production of 660,000 barrels a day by the middle of the next decade, it will make up about 40 percent of the country’s total oil and gas output, according to Equinor ASA. Photographer: Mikael Holter/Bloomberg
