Shell-Exxon venture reports gas discovery in the Netherlands

Jan 16, 2012 12:00 AM

A joint venture between Shell and Exxon says it has successfully drilled a significant new onshore natural gas field in the Netherlands. Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij says the field contains 4 bn cm of gas, about enough to supply 2.5 mm households for a year.
Production is due to begin this summer.

The Metslawier-zuid well, 3,900 meters deep, is located near the city of Dokkum, 130 km northeast of Amsterdam. Most Dutch natural gas reserves are stored in a single field in the province of Groningen. But 40 % comes from smaller fields on land and offshore, such as the field announced.
The Dutch state owns a 40 % stake in Metslawier-zuid.
