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 subsea facility including three production wells tied-back to the Gjøa Field.
Recovery strategyThe field will be produced by pressure depletion and gas expansion in the gas cap.
TransportThe well stream will be transported through the Troll Oil Pipeline II and to the Mongstad terminal. The rich gas will be exported to the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) on the British continental shelf for further processing at the St Fergus terminal in the UK.
StatusThe field is under development, and production is scheduled to start in late 2020.
