Neptune Energy has chosen Rosenberg Worley to modify on the Gjoa semi-submersible platform in the Norwegian North Sea.

The work will be carried out by the energy services firm’s Stavanger division as part of the Duva and Gjoa P1 projects.

Neptune submitted development plans for the Duva and Gjoa P1 projects in February.

Production from the projects is expected in late 2020 or early 2021.

Total recoverable resources are estimated to be 120 million barrels of oil equivalent.

The fields will be developed as subsea tie-backs connecting two templates to the Gjoa platform.

Odin Estensen, managing director of Neptune’s Norwegian business, said: “We are pleased to award these contracts to Rosenberg WorleyParsons under the existing frame agreement.

“This work is important in order to maintain the fast-track schedule for developing Duva and Gjøa P1 as subsea tie-backs to Gjøa.

“The project demonstrates our commitment to pursuing growth opportunities and further strengthens Gjøa’s position as a hub for the wider area.”
