Who we are

Succeeding in today’s energy world requires collaboration, agility and the courage to do things differently.

At Spirit Energy, we are energised by this pressing need to rethink the way the sector operates and our place within it.

Today, our team of more than 800 people is committed to the development of oil and gas reserves in Europe, overseeing production of 50million barrels of oil equivalent per year while working out how to tap into reserves and resources in the pipeline amounting to more than 600million barrels.

We are working hard to  maximise the potential of our existing assets, work with our partners to bring exciting new developments on stream and maintain an absolute commitment to safety in everything we do.

Our History

Spirit Energy was created in 2017 following the combination of Centrica’s Exploration & Production business and Bayerngas Norge AS. The business is 69%-owned by Centrica plc, with the remaining 31% owned by Bayerngas Norge’s former shareholders, led by Stadtwerke München and Bayerngas GmbH.

The independent company was formed to combine a complementary mix of producing and development assets, and creates a robust, self-financing business to allow both organic and inorganic growth.
