Operations in the Netherlands

Active in the region since 1964, Neptune is the largest offshore oil and gas producer on the Dutch continental shelf. In 2018, our fields in the Netherlands made up six per cent of the Group’s total 2P reserves.

Neptune operates 26 production licences and maintains a large infrastructure of 32 offshore facilities including four major treatment hubs. Our numerous projects span the entire value chain, from near-field exploration, HPHT development, maintenance to decommissioning. We engage in significant drilling and well activity: two jack-up drilling units are planned for 2019. Pipeline design, installation and operations are key areas of expertise. The company’s pipeline services include offshore installation, inspections and maintenance of platform-based and subsea installations. Neptune Energy Netherlands has minority shareholdings in Noordgastransport B.V. (18.57%) and NOGAT B.V. (15%). The Netherlands operated production portfolio is classified into four main areas, each of them linked to a main treatment and/or compression complex.
