WATCH: First riser platform installed in Johan Sverdrup field project

Equinor has today released footage of the installation of the first riser platform in the Johan Sverdrup field project.

The energy firm claim that some 660,000 barrels of oil will flow daily from this platform, worth more than £32 million per day.

The platform is powered from shore, which makes the Johan Sverdrup field one of the most carbon-efficient fields in the world, said Equinor.

The second riser platform is to follow soon after.
