Development

The field consists of two subsea templates, one with three oil producers and one with three water injectors, tied back to Neptune Energy’s Gjøa platform. Nova is sustainably operated with hydro power from shore through Gjøa.

Reservoir

The reservoir contains oil with a gas cap in sandstone of Late Jurassic age in the Heather Formation in the Viking Group, at a depth of 2,500 metres. The reservoir quality is good.

Recovery

The field is produced by pressure support from water injection and with gas lift.

Transport

Oil from Nova is transported via Gjøa through the Troll Oil Pipeline II to Mongstad in Norway, associated gas is exported via the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System (FLAGS) pipeline to St Fergus in the UK, supplying the European energy market.
