Neptune Energy started production from the Adorf Z17 gas well in Adorf Carboniferous gas field, Georgsdorf, northwestern Germany.
The well is expected to increase Neptune’s production from the Adorf license by 1,800 boe/d to about 6,300 boe/d. Construction of a dedicated processing plant at the site for treatment of the gas was completed earlier this year.
Adorf gas field was discovered in 2020 and the first well, Adorf Z15, was brought into production in October the same year. A second well, Adorf Z16, increased Neptune’s production from the license to around 4,500 boe/d at the beginning of 2022. Drilling of a fourth well, Adorf Z18, reached a final depth of 4,773 m in April this year and is due to begin production in third-quarter 2023 (OGJ Online, Jan. 24, 2023).
Neptune Energy is operator and 100% owner of the field.
