Operator Neptune Energy announced that production has started from the Gjøa P1 development in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
Gjøa P1 has been developed via a new subsea template, tied back to existing infrastructure on the Gjøa field. It is a two-well development with one oil and one gas producer.
The semi-submersible Gjøa production unit is electrified with hydropower from shore and has one of the lowest CO2 footprints per produced barrel of oil equivalent (boe) on the Norwegian Shelf.
Good reservoir management has already extended the field life considerably. Gjøa is now set to produce over 100 million boe more than was estimated when production began in 2010. Gjøa P1 will help further maximise the use of hydrocarbon resources.
