KCA Deutag's Kenera business unit will deliver the drilling contract announced this morning by Neptune Energy.
Following successful drilling of the Adorf Z15 and Adorf Z16 wells, Neptune Energy has awarded KCA Deutag the contract to drill the new Z17 well in the Adorf natural gas field in north-west Germany.
Our rig will be powered by electrical motors instead of diesel-driven generators, which will remove an estimated 1,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions from the drilling operation. Work is expected to begin this summer and we look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Neptune Energy.
Ron Klunder, KCA Deutag Country Manager for Germany, said: "The award of this contract further strengthens our long-term relationship with Neptune Energy and allows us, through Kenera, our new business unit, to utilise technology to cut emissions and assist Neptune in meeting their carbon reduction goals."
