Neptune Energy and its partners will be producing even more gas from their Duva field in Norway, the privately held explorer said on October 6.
In April, Norwegian authorities granted Neptune and the Duva licence partners a permit to temporarily increase gas production by 6,500 barrels/day of oil equivalent until September, but this has now been extended to the end of 2022. The UK’s gas supply outlook has worsened since April, notably with the sabotage on the Nord Stream pipelines.
Duva’s overall production is around 40,000 boe/d, of which just over a third is gas. Duva is tied back to the Neptune-operated Gjøa platform and the gas is transported by pipeline to St Fergus in Scotland, where it enters the national grid.
Electrified with hydropower from shore, the platform’s CO2 emissions are less than half the average on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
