Final Permit for Field N05-A Gas Production

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/2/2022, Location: Europe

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate has given ONE-Dyas the final permits for the development of the North Sea's N05-A gas field. This offshore gas production project is in line with the Dutch government's small-fields policy. The Dutch government has approved the production of natural gas from the N05-A field and neighbouring areas in the North Sea with the final permission. The N05-A platform is about 20 kilometres north of the islands of Borkum, Rottumerplaat, and Schiermonnikoog in the North Sea.

The N05-A platform will run entirely on wind energy from the nearby Riffgat wind farm, which reduces the carbon footprint even further. It makes an active contribution to the energy transition and to achieving the goals of the Climate Agreement, in a safe and responsible manner.

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. "

Thorough study of environmental impact
For the development of N05-A, there has been frequent consultation with stakeholders since 2018. These consultations provided input for an extensive environmental impact report, in which the effects on the environment, nature and the surroundings, the implementation variants and choices made are examined and described. As a result of the opinions and advice from the regulatory advisers, a number of adjustments were made to further minimise the environmental impact at the site.

On 18 February 2022, the Commission for Environmental Assessment (Commissie m.e.r.) concluded that the environmental effects have been sufficiently assessed and that the usefulness and necessity of the project are sufficiently described. The Committee expressed its appreciation for the electrification of the platform, which will limit emissions into the air as much as possible.

First natural gas from N05-A in 2024
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 kilometres north of the Ems estuary. ONE-Dyas is currently actively exploring the potential of other gas fields in this part of the North Sea. Future developments will again go through a permitting procedure.

The final permit decisions for gas production N05-A will be available for inspection for six weeks from 3 June 2022.
