Nova Subsea know-how in practice
Nova positions Wintershall Dea as a global expert in smart subsea field development.
The Nova field, located in the Q35 area of the North Sea, is being developed with two subsea templates tied back to the existing Gjøa platform. In a resource-rich area of the ocean, the use of existing infrastructure in the area enables a cost-efficient extraction of the resources in the reservoir at 2,570 metres below sea level. When it comes on stream, Nova will be Wintershall Dea’s fourth tieback field in production, making us one of the foremost subsea experts in Norway.
Building on subsea expertise
Nova’s sustainable development solution creates a win-win for Wintershall Dea, the Nova partnership, the Gjøa license and the Norwegian society. The tieback to the existing Gjøa platform will save costs for Wintershall Dea and extend the economic lifetime of the existing infrastructure. Through even greater cooperation with its Norwegian partners, Wintershall Dea is gaining further expertise in subsea production and is positioning itself worldwide as an expert in smart subsea field development.
Nova is a smart solution that uses existing infrastructure to deliver maximum value.
Developing a core area
The Q35 area of the North Sea is a core region for Wintershall Dea. As a satellite field of the Gjøa platform, Nova twins with Wintershall Dea’s Vega field which also ties back to the same facility. Alongside a series of promising discoveries and exploration licenses, the region promises to be a continuing growth area.
