“We are very happy to welcome Stork Worley Integrated Solutions as our partner in delivering our brownfield and decommissioning project scope,” said Lex de Groot, Neptune Energy’s Netherlands managing director.
“Part of building a sustainable future for our business and delivering significant societal and economic benefits to the Netherlands is optimizing existing production. Therefore, the condition of our assets is crucial. Stork and Worley are experts in delivering the right people, services and solutions for brownfield modifications. For example, our L10A platform is the oldest platform on the Dutch part of the North Sea and has been producing since May 16, 1975. Next to optimizing our current production opportunities, we also keep exploring plays and participating in future developments such as the offshore green hydrogen pilot PosHYdon on our Q13a platform. We keep investing in the Netherlands to build a stable platform for future growth.”
The integrated partnership will drive leading performance in safety, excellence, teamwork, operations and project value for the brownfield and decommissioning scope.
