Gjøa A reliable host
Located in the northern North Sea, Gjøa is in a core region for Wintershall Dea. The operated Vega and Nova fields are both Gjøa satellites.
The Gjøa platform, operated by Neptune, is located in the northern North Sea, some 45 kilometres off the west coast of the city of Florø. The field is developed with four subsea templates at a water depth of 360 metres, tied to a semi-submersible production and processing plant. Gjøa is already the host for the Wintershall Dea Vega field, and will also be the host for the operated Nova field.
Power from shore
Gjøa is the first floating platform on the Norwegian Continental Shelf to take power from shore. Located 45 kilometres off the coast, the Q35 area is a core region for Wintershall Dea.
Reservoir and recovery
The Gjøa reservoir contains gas above a thin oil zone in Jurassic sandstone in the Dunlin, Brent and Viking Groups. The reservoir depth is 2,200 metres. The field is exploited by pressure depletion. In the southern segments, oil production was prioritised in the first years. Production of the gas cap started in 2015. Low-pressure production was implemented in 2017.
We rely on Gjøa to provide the services we need to develop Nova. Gjøa has already proved to be a good host for Vega and we now see it as a critical hub for the whole area.
Export of hydrocarbons
The oil from Gjøa and the satellite fields are transported via the Troll Oil Pipeline II to Mongstad. Rich gas is transported via the FLAGS pipeline to St Fergus in the UK.
The Gjøa P1 fast track development project successfully started production on February 2021. This project aimed to develop untapped reserves in the northern P1 segment of the Gjøa field at a water depth of 340 metres. The P1 segment increased the remaining developed reserves at Gjøa by 30%.
