Ashley Heppenstall, President and CEO of Lundin Petroleum comment:"The signing of the Pre-Unit Agreement is an important milestone in respect of moving forward the development of the North Sea's largest discovery for many years. We are pleased that Statoil have agreed to lead the development and  that they share the common  goal of developing Johan Sverdrup in a way to maximise resources and bring the development onstream as quickly as possible. We will as operator continue to be responsible for the appraisal of the Johan Sverdrup field located in PL501 and support Statoil through secondment of staff. In tandem with the development studies, negotiations will progress regarding a unitisation agreement between the various licences covering the Johan Sverdrup field."
