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

We are an E&P company. But we’re not your usual E&P company. We’re pushing what’s possible, embracing collaboration as the new normal, and thinking differently.

We are proud of our heritage, but we’re even prouder of our ambition to constantly break new ground.

Focused on creating a strong, sustainable business built for the future, we are exploring challenging frontiers and giving technological innovation a chance.

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

We are Spirit Energy.

Untapped energy

Huge opportunities remain in north-west Europe's basins – 40 billion barrels identified and an estimated 30 billion barrels yet to find.

As a full-cycle regional specialist, we are committed to exploring new ways to fuel growth, and add value as a lean, agile and sustainable company.


In 2017, we set-out to change the way the industry operates, moving swiftly into action as Spirit Energy, and pursuing our ambition of becoming a leading North West European operator.

Here are a few of the milestones we’ve achieved since Spirit Energy was formed.

Dec 2017
