The Vega field is located in the northern part of the North Sea, 28 kilometres west of the Gjøa facility and 120 kilometres northwest of Bergen. The field is developed with three underwater templates tied back to Gjøa. After taking over in 2015, Vega became Wintershall Dea’s first operated subsea field in production in Norway.

Gas and oil production

The Vega field consists of three seabed templates, Vega North, Vega Central and Vega South. Vega North and Central are gas condensate fields. The Vega South field is a gas condensate field overlain by an oil zone. It produces by pressure depletion with the underlying gas reservoir, providing natural gas lift for the shallower oil zone.

Subsea expertise

In 2015, Vega became Wintershall Dea’s first operated subsea field in production in Norway, when it took over from Equinor. Since then, Wintershall Dea has brought Maria into production and is developing Dvalin and Nova – two more subsea fields.
