Neptune produces first gas from 11th well at Cygnus

27 April 2023

Privately-owned operator Neptune Energy and Centrica subsidiary Spirit Energy have begun producing gas from the 11th well at their Cygnus gas field in the southern North Sea. It follows the tenth well, which began production earlier this year.

Neptune said in an April 27 statement: “We’re taking steps to boost North Sea gas production which reduces the UK’s reliance on less secure and more carbon intensive supplies of imported energy, and also supports the government’s aim of achieving energy independence by 2040.”

Spirit added: “Continuing to secure reliable and responsible supplies of energy from the UK continental shelf has never been more important.”
