ENGIE E&P have increased the current gas production from Gjøa in the North Sea by 17.5%. Gjøa is scheduled to produce 60 million boe more than estimated at start of production.
"Gjøa was originally designed to export 17 million m3/d. That we are currently producing 20 million m3/d, 17.5% more than estimated, is a great achievement," said Hilde Ådland, Head of Operations in ENGIE E&P Norge AS.
This has created increased gas export revenues of NOK 5 million/d for the Gjøa licence.
“Going from a limited export level of 10.5 million m3/d due to singing risers in 2010, to the current production level has been an exciting process. We have continually focused on challenging limitations and trying to find solutions, which has yielded good results. Now that we've achieved 20 million m3/d, it is an extra bonus that we're also experiencing a regularity of 98.3%," said Ådland.
"Due to good reservoir management, Gjøa is set to produce 60 million boe more than estimated at start of production, and in total, the field will produce 400 million boe over its lifetime," said Ådland.
