North Sea

GEms project

Discover Exploration, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Hansa Hydrocarbon Ltd, owns a material non-operated interest in various exploration and production licences of the GEms project, located in the North Sea across the maritime border between the Netherlands and Germany.

The GEms project is operated by ONE-Dyas, the largest privately-owned Dutch E&P operating company. Our other partners are Energie Beheer Nederland (EBN) and Neptune Energy.

The partners intend to extract natural gas from field N05-A and from surrounding fields. The proposed platform location is about 20 kilometres North of the islands of Borkum, Rottumerplaat and Schiermonnikoog. The N05-A platform will be located in the Netherlands, approximately one and a half kilometres from German waters. Platform N05-A will be the first Dutch offshore gas treatment platform in the North Sea to run entirely on wind energy. For this purpose, a cable will be installed to the nearby German wind farm Riffgat.
