Neptune to double output at Norway's Duva field

Neptune and its partners at the Duva field off Norway will double natural gas production at the site, supporting increased export flow to Europe, the company announced on April 8.

"The partnership has worked closely with the Norwegian authorities to identify measures to help meet gas demand in Europe," Neptune said. "This will enable an increase in gas production from the Duva field by 6,500 barrels of oil equivalent/day, from the first half of April."

Duva's overall hydrocarbon output is currently 30,000 boe/d, of which 6,500 boe/d is natural gas. Gas output will be raised to 13,000 boe/d for an initial four to eight months, the company said.

Neptune operates Duva with a 30% interest, while Japan's Inpex has 30%, Poland's PGNiG has a further 30% and Norway's Sval Energi 10%.
