Recovery strategy

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

Transport

The 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.

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 consists of three segments: Main, South East and East. The main reservoir is in the segment Main, which has good reservoir quality.

Status

Production is scheduled to start in late 2021.

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 planned 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.
