Europe’s largest independent exploration and production company Neptune Energy has been formally selected to participate in a pioneering pilot project to create the first offshore hydrogen plant in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.

The platform is well suited for the groundbreaking project; as the first fully electrified offshore oil platform in the Dutch North Sea, it saves approximately 16.5 kilotonnes of CO2 per year.
The hydrogen produced by the electrolyser on the Q13a platform will be transported via an existing pipeline to an offshore structure where it will be used to generate electricity.
