Norway - Watch Neptune Install Subsea Equipment for Two North Sea Projects

Neptune Energy has successfully installed subsea oil and gas production flowlines and gas lift flowlines for its Duva & Gjøa P1 developments in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

Neptune and its partners accelerated key elements of the development schedule of the subsea tiebacks, which will connect two templates to the nearby Neptune-operated Gjøa platform, with Gjøa P1 in particular on track to achieve first oil two months ahead of the original plan.

Parallel works have been conducted where possible across the drilling, engineering, fabrication, and installation disciplines, Neptune Energy said on Thursday.

The milestones were reached just one year after the development plans for the Duva (PL636) and Gjøa P1 (PL153) projects were approved by the Norwegian authorities.

Neptune’s Head of the Subsea Gjøa Project, Crawford Brown, said: “Despite challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the subsea execution schedule for Duva & Gjøa P1 has been accelerated in comparison with our original plans.

Brown added: “We have taken a campaign approach in our use of vessels and common equipment, achieving positive synergies through joint mobilisation and focusing on collaboration between project teams for Neptune and our key contractors and partners."
