Oranje-Nassau Energie B.V. (ONE) is researching the opportunities for the production of natural gas in the GEms area in the North Sea. ONE is starting follow-up research on the recoverability of the natural gas that has been found in the area. The process for approval of the actual production of the gas will last multiple years.
A Gateway to the Ems
The GEms area encompasses a section of the Dutch and German North Sea to the North of the Eems estuary. A three-party consortium, consisting of ONE, Discover Exploration Ltd., and EBN B.V., has discovered potentially recoverable natural gas in this area. This conclusion has been drawn from the results of exploration drilling is the area. The discovery of natural gas and the acquired insights have now led to a new phase in which follow-up research will be done and the development of the discovery will be prepared.
The area has been given the name GEms because of its location as ‘Gateway to the Ems’. The Ems is a river on the Dutch-German border. The GEms area is located in both the Dutch and German parts of the North Sea.
