Operator Neptune Energy and its companions introduced that drilling has begun on 4 manufacturing wells on the Duva area within the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The wells are being drilled by the Deepsea Yantai, a semi-submersible rig operated by Odfjell Drilling. All 4 wells have been pre-drilled and cased off at a depth of two,500 metres, previous to beginning the ultimate drilling marketing campaign.
Duva is a fast-track mission being developed as a subsea set up with three oil producers and one fuel producer, tied again to the Neptune-operated Gjøa semi-submersible platform.
Neptune Energy’s Director of Projects & Engineering in Norway, Erik Oppedal, stated: “This is the ultimate section of the Duva growth mission, and we’re at the moment working to speed up the start-up date. An environment friendly drilling marketing campaign kinds an integral a part of reaching this. Duva will?each?enhance manufacturing and lengthen the?operational?lifetime of our operated?Gjøa?platform.”
The Deepsea Yantai is now set to drill the reservoir sections, set up the decrease completions and execute effectively clean-up actions. The drilling work is estimated to take round 110 days.
Duva is scheduled to come back on-line within the third quarter of 2021 and can add roughly 25,000 barrels (gross) of oil equal per day (boepd) to the Gjøa facility.
The subsea works related to Duva have been efficiently accomplished in 2020, with the 4 subsea timber put in in March 2021, efficiently overcoming important challenges offered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Duva oil and fuel area was Neptune’s first discovery within the Norwegian North Sea, a strategically vital space supporting the corporate’s progress. It is situated 14 km northeast of the Gjøa area, at a water depth of 360 metres.
