Neptune Energy has announced first production from its operated Adorf Z18 gas well, in the municipality of Georgsdorf, North-Western Germany.

The Z18 well - in the Carboniferous formation - is expected to increase Neptune’s production from the Adorf licence by about 1900 boe/d day to around 8200 boe/d.

Construction of a dedicated processing plant at the site for treatment of the gas was also completed earlier this year.

Neptune Energy’s Managing Director in Germany, Andreas Scheck, said: “The Adorf Carboniferous field development is one of Neptune’s most promising activities in Germany and demonstrates our desire to grow the business here.”

The Adorf gas field was discovered in 2020 and the first well, Adorf Z15, was brought into production in the same year. A second well, Adorf Z16, started production at the beginning of 2022. A third well, Adorf Z17 increased Neptune’s production from the licence to around 6300 boe/d in June 2023.

Neptune Energy owns 100% of the Adorf Carboniferous gas field.
