Neptune Energy picks Dutch player for offshore ops in North Sea

The Netherlands-based WFR Oilfield Services has entered into a multi-year partnership agreement with Neptune Energy Netherlands, a Dutch subsidiary of Neptune Energy, for the provision of a wide range of well testing services in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.

The contract between the two companies, which covers offshore operations in the Dutch North Sea, encompasses the provision of surface well testing, data acquisition services and equipment, and personnel for Neptune’s drilling operations.

Arjan Vos, Director of Drilling & Wells of Neptune Energy Netherlands, commented: “We are looking forward to working with the experienced people of WFR Oilfield Services. As they have their home base also here in the Dutch North Sea, they know what it takes to optimally perform safe operations, whilst being flexible and adaptable to the local needs and conditions.”

In addition, WFR Oilfield Services, which has an operational base in Den Helder, is expected to support Neptune in the areas of production optimisation, well intervention and abandonment operations.

Jorg ter Beek, General Manager of WFR Oilfield Services, remarked: “We are proud that Neptune, the largest offshore gas production company in the Dutch North Sea, has chosen to work with us. This partnership will enable us to further expand our Den Helder facility and strengthen our market position in the field of well testing services.”

Neptune operates 29 platforms in the Netherlands and has been active in the Dutch sector of the North Sea since 1964. In October 2022, the oil and gas player also awarded a contract to CHC Helicopters for offshore transport services in the Dutch North Sea.

Recently, Neptune also reached an agreement with Eserv to digitise the D15-A and K12-C platforms in the Dutch North Sea, as digital twins would enable engineers to carry out traditional offshore work from an onshore location, accelerating work schedules and reducing costs.
