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

We are a truly pioneering energy company with a portfolio and ambitions that span the breadth of the energy transition. We’re continuing to break new ground, collaborating and thinking differently.

Our strategy is focused on: 

  • Safely delivering production from our existing assets;
  • Meeting and de-risking our decommissioning obligations, and
  • Exploring strategic energy transition opportunities from our existing assets.

We’re proud of our heritage. With more than 30 years of production, we’re maximising the potential of our existing assets and substantial gas reserves in the UK and Netherlands. Above all, we live by our commitment to safety in everything we do.

Our portfolio is predominantly gas (96%), providing vital, primary energy to fuel our homes and businesses in the UK and Europe.

We push field life out, and we are pulling net zero forwards, reducing our emissions as we go.

Diversity breeds innovation and innovation drives performance, it’s why we are so passionate about diversity.

We continue to create value with our industry-leading decommissioning capability and performance. We actively share our learnings and experience with regulators and industry peers.

We are even more proud of – and excited by - our ambition to be a leader in the energy transition and are actively exploring exciting opportunities around net zero.

Our success to date, and our ambitions for the future, don’t just happen on their own. That’s where our respected, high-performing teams come in. They are creative, industrious and brilliant at what they do.

We see diversity in success … and success in diversity. We have worked hard to nurture our diverse, inclusive and welcoming workplace. The opportunity to add value by doing things differently. Everyone has a voice that is heard. Simplicity. Efficiency. Innovation.
