Fossil Energy – Development
ONE-Dyas, together with its partners Hansa Hydrocarbons and EBN, intends to extract natural gas from field N05-A and from surrounding fields in the German and Dutch North Sea.
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.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate (EZK) has granted ONE-Dyas the final permits for the development of the gas field N05-A in the North Sea. These permits will be available for inspection for six weeks from 3 June 2022.
Chris de Ruyter van Steveninck, CEO ONE-Dyas: “Project N05-A and the energy transition go hand in hand. The transition to 100% renewable energy takes time. Natural gas will still be part of the energy mix in the coming decades. As long as natural gas is still needed to heat our homes, it is our job to make sure it is as clean, affordable and reliable as possible.”
ONE-Dyas aims to deliver the first natural gas to Dutch and German households by the end of 2024. The N05-A project is part of the so-called GEMS area, an area approximately 20 to 100 kilometers north of the Ems estuary.
