In April Norwegian authorities granted Neptune and the Duva license partners a permit to temporarily increase gas production by 6,500 boe/d until September. Under the new permit, the higher production rate will be maintained until year-end 2022.
Duva's overall production is about 40 kboe/d, of which 15 kboe/d is natural gas. Duva is tied back to the Neptune-operated Gjøa platform, and the gas is transported by pipeline to the UK’s St Fergus gas terminal.
Electrified with hydropower from shore, CO2 emissions per boe on the Gjøa platform are less than half the average on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Duva is a subsea installation with three oil producers and one gas producer, tied back to the Neptune-operated Gjøa semisubmersible platform.
Duva license partners include Neptune Energy (30% and operator), INPEX Idemitsu (30%), PGNiG Upstream Norway (30%) and Sval Energi (10%).
Gjøa licence partners are Neptune Energy (30% and operator), Petoro (30%), Wintershall Dea Norge (28%) and OKEA (12%).
