Field facts

Römerberg is the largest oil field that Neptune operates in the Rhine Valley.  This 5–6 km² field holds significant reserves and produces around 3 kboe of crude oil daily. Further development in this field to expand production is a priority for the business.

The Römerberg field was discovered by accident in 2003 when a geothermal drilling project struck oil 2,000 metres underground below the city of Speyer. The field began producing in 2007. In the years since, Neptune and our partner Palatina GeoCon have drilled eight producing wells at two operating sites and produced more than 7 mmboe. Produced oil is transported by tanker to the Mineral Oil Refinery Oberrhein in Karlsruhe.
