Vega Pioneering Subsea Field
In 2015, Vega became Wintershall Dea’s first Norwegian subsea field in production. The field is developed with three underwater templates tied back to a single host.
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.
Vega is an excellent field, giving us the long-term predictable barrels that form the backbone of our operated production.
Vega is located in the Q35 area of the North Sea. It is a satellite field of Gjøa which will also be the host of Wintershall Dea’s Nova development. Quadrant 35 also contains several Wintershall Dea prospects and promising exploration licenses.
