Poland´s PGNiG reduces emissions related to development of Norwegian Duva field

Warsaw, March 23 - Neftegaz.RU. In the Duva oil & gas field, in which PGNiG Upstream Norway holds a 30% interest, installation of subsea trees has been successfully completed.
Thanks to the installation method used, it was possible to significantly reduce the costs of the operation and the associated carbon dioxide emissions.

PGNiG together with the other licence partners, have completed an important stage of preparations for launch of production from the Duva field in the Norwegian Sea.
A tree system has been installed on the seabed to monitor and control production.

The installation was carried out from the deck of a vessel instead of the usual installation from the drilling rig.
This helped to materially shortened the installation time and, consequently, reduce costs by approximately $12 million, with a 60% reduction of carbon dioxide emissions associated with the entire operation.

Paweł Majewski, President of PGNiG said:
  • Installation of subsea trees from the vessel is much more demanding in terms of logistics than installation from the drilling rig, but it brings measurable benefits, incl. environmental ones
  • We are determined to take further steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with our operations, thus improving the environmental characteristics of natural gas along the entire value chain
  • I would like to congratulate all the licence partners on the successful installation of the subsea trees and the benefits obtained thanks to this operation
According to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, Duva´s reserves amount to 88 mboe (incl. approximately 8.4 bcm of natural gas).
Upon launch of production, the maximum annual output from the field is expected to reach approximately 30,000 boe in the initial period.
Production is scheduled to start in the 3rd quarter of 2021.

Gas production by PGNiG Upstream Norway is projected to reach over 0.9 bcm in 2021, compared with 0.5 bcm in 2020.
The significant increase in production is driven by the launch of production from the Ærfugl field and the acquisition of interests in the already producing fields.
The company holds interests in 36 licences on theNorwegian Continental Shelf.
