PGNiG close to launch production from the Duva field

Poland’s oil and gas company PGNiG is launching production from the Duva field, in which its subsidiary, PGNiG Upstream Norway owns a 30 per cent share.

The laying of underwater installations that will be used to extract hydrocarbons from this deposit has just finished and the planned date of commencement of production is the third quarter of 2021.

“Gas from the Norwegian shelf will flow to Poland via the Baltic Pipe in less than two years,” said Jerzy Kwieciński, President of the PGNiG Management Board. “Our strategic goal is to achieve the highest possible extraction of our own gas from Norwegian deposits in which we have shares. Only a year has passed since the Norwegian authorities approved the development plans for the Duva field and we have already passed the halfway point in preparation for production. The works are progressing and the project is being implemented even a little ahead of schedule.”

PGNiG has been operating in Norway since 2007. PGNiG Upstream Norway currently holds interests in 31 exploration and production licenses on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The company currently produces crude oil and natural gas from 7 fields on the shelf. This year, production began from the Skogul and Ærfugl fields.
