Neptune Energy begins production from German natural gas well
(WO) – Neptune Energy announced first production from its operated Adorf Z18 natural gas well, in the municipality of Georgsdorf, northwestern Germany.
The Z18 well - in the Carboniferous formation - is expected to increase Neptune’s production from the Adorf license by about 1,900 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) to around 8,200 boed.
Construction of a dedicated processing plant at the site for treatment of the natural gas was also completed earlier this year.
The Adorf natural gas field was discovered in 2020 and the first well, Adorf Z15, was brought into production in the same year. A second well, Adorf Z16, started production at the beginning of 2022. A third well, Adorf Z17 increased Neptune’s production from the licence to around 6,300 boepd in June 2023.
Neptune Energy owns 100% of the Adorf Carboniferous gas field.
