Neptune Energy Norge expects production to begin in late 2020 from Duva and Gjoa P1 oil and natural gas fields in the Norwegian North Sea.

It has received approval for parallel development of the fields in 375 m of water via subsea completions tied back to the Gjoa field semisubmersible platform.

Peak production rates are expected to be 30,000 boe/d from Duva and 24,000 boe/d from Gjoa P1.

Duva, on PL636 about 12 km northeast of the Gjoa platform, will have two oil production wells, one gas production well, and the potential for an additional oil well. Neptune estimates recoverable resources at 88 million boe.

Duva interests are Neptune, operator, and Idemitsu Petroleum Norge, 30% each, and Pandion Energy and Wellesley Petroleum, 20% each.

Gjoa P1, with recoverable resources estimated at 32 million boe, is on PL153 in the northern part of Gjoa field. P1 interests are Neptune, operator, and Petoro, 30% each; Wintershall DEA, 28%; and OKEA, 12%.

TechnipFMC has an integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation contract for subsea work (OGJ Online, Apr. 3, 2019).
