ReservoirThe reservoir contains oil and gas in turbiditic sandstone of Early Cretaceous age in the Agat Formation. It is a stratigraphic trap at a depth of 2,200 metres. The reservoir quality is good.
DevelopmentDuva is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, six kilometres northeast of the Gjøa field. The water depth is 350 metres. Duva was discovered in 2016, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2019. Duva will be developed with a 4-slot subsea template with two to three oil production wells and one gas production well tied-back to the Gjøa platform.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion and gas expansion in the gas cap.
TransportThe well stream will be routed to the Gjøa platform for processing and export. The oil will be transported further through the Troll Oil Pipeline II to the Mongstad terminal, and the gas will be exported via the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) pipeline to St Fergus in the UK.
StatusThe field is under development, and production is scheduled to start in early 2021.
