Recovery strategy

The field is produced by pressure support from water injection and with gas lift.

Transport

The well stream is routed to the Gjøa platform for processing and export. The oil is transported further through the Troll Oil Pipeline II to the Mongstad terminal, and the gas is exported via the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) pipeline to St Fergus in the UK.

Reservoir

The reservoir contains oil with a gas cap in sandstone of Late Jurassic age in the Heather Formation in the Viking Group, at a depth of 2,500 metres. The reservoir quality is good.

Status

Nova started production in July 2022.

Development

Nova is a field in the northern part of the North Sea, 17 kilometres southwest of the Gjøa field. The water depth is 370 metres. Nova was proven in 2012, and the plan for development and operation (PDO) was approved in 2018. The development consists of two 4-slot subsea templates, one with three oil producers and one with three water injectors, tied-back to the Gjøa platform.
