Germany – Neptune Energy has secured new renewable electricity supplies for its German assets, resulting in CO2 emissions reductions of over 11,000 tonnes per year.
Neptune uses electricity from shore at its operated Gja field in Norway and at its Q13a-A platform in the Netherlands, in addition to using renewable energy to power its onshore assets in Germany. In 2021, using electrical power from the shore at these locations reduced CO2 emissions by an estimated 226,000 tonnes.
Electricity from renewables
Neptune Energy’s Director of Global Operations & Electrification, Mungo McLeish, said: “With further electrification projects planned in Norway, we aim to have around 50 kboepd electrified by 2027, and will continue to investigate opportunities to electrify assets within our portfolio.”
A Certificate of Origin has been issued to Neptune under the new supply agreement in Germany, ensuring that electricity is generated from renewable energy sources.
