Major projects 2017

We expect to start-up seven major projects in 2017, making it one of the most significant years for commissioning new projects in our history. Together with the projects already brought on line in 2016, these new projects will make a huge contribution to the 800,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (mboed) of new production by 2020.
