I live in Sweden and it's been cold. I have driven my car 3 times since November. I have to jump it to get it started. Today I jumped it and drove for 30 minutes at 90 km/hr. I parked it and tried to start it and dead. Also, LOW ENGINE OIL PRESSURE light came on as I was pulling in to parking space. OIL level is good and runs great. Could my battery be so dead it won't charge from the alternator and cause this oil light to come on? Or do I have bad alternator and bigger problems? It's a 2004 GT

If it was flat, jumping it and driving 30 minutes will not charge it up.

You need to take the battery out and charge it properly.

Low oil pressure light probably came on because engine was about to cutout.

If the battery as that low a 30 minute drive would not be sufficient to recharge it. Use a battery charger and try again. How old is the battery?
