Netherlands Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Market Volumes and Forecast by Terrain, Assets and Major Companies, 2021-2025

All the vital news, analysis, and commentary curated by our industry experts.

The Netherlands’s total gross crude oil and condensate production in 2020 was valued at 18,811 bd and is forecasted to show a declining CAGR of more than -6.5% between 2021-2025. The Netherlands is currently Europe’s leading producer of natural gas. The sector has been historically dominated by the giant onshore Groningen gas field in the Northwest German Basin onshore and has been producing since 1963 with the remainder of resources predominantly in small fields which lie either offshore in the shallow-water North Sea or onshore. The Groningen field production peaked in the late 1970s to early 1980s at over 880,000 boed, 99% of which is natural gas with the remaining volumes being condensate. As a result of concerns over seismic risk in the region, production from the field has declined over the past decade as a result of output caps and it is due to be taken off-stream prematurely in 2022. Crude oil and condensate production in the country peaked in 2003 at approximately 44,000 barrels per day and 2020 saw the lowest supply from the country in over a decade due to the impacts of COVID-19. The Netherlands has begun to curb the production of crude oil in response to the changing climate in Europe and efforts to cut carbon emissions.

What are the market dynamics of the Netherlands’ exploration & production market?

In 2021, total production in the Netherlands is forecast to decline by approximately 6% as a result of the wind-down of the Groningen field and the ultimate cessation of production during 2022. Production from the country has been in decline continuously for the last decade primarily due to the steps taken by the Dutch government to limit seismic activity caused by production activities around the Groningen field which historically accounted for the majority of the country’s total production.

The Netherlands is forecast to see a slight increase in crude oil production in 2021 and 2022 as a result of the bounce back in demand post lockdown Europe and increasing production from the Schoonebeek field. However, post-2022, there are no new projects which would be able to stabilize the country’s crude oil production and the large Rembrandt-Vermeer development has been shelved by Wintershall Noordzee citing delays in obtaining an environmental permit. Without this development, the Netherlands has a declining outlook for oil production.

The outlook for natural gas production is also concerning as the country has no planned or announced fields which would be able to replace the production volumes from Groningen once it is decommissioned. This will force the Netherlands along with many other European countries to rely more heavily upon gas volumes from outside of Europe and as we have seen during 2021, this has caused a significant rise in gas prices. The majority of developments in the last decade in the Netherlands have been small, onshore and offshore fields with a maximum production of just a few thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day and are insufficient for supplying the country’s growing demand for gas.

What are the key categories of the Netherlands’s crude oil and natural gas production?

The Netherlands crude oil and natural gas production is categorized by terrain into onshore and shallow water. The shallow water category accounted for the largest share in crude oil production while the onshore category in natural gas production. The major assets in Netherlands’s crude oil and condensate production include Schoonebeek (Olie), Sillimanite and F02a-Hanze, Rotterdam, and Q13a-Amstel. Similarly, the major assets of the Netherlands’s marketed natural gas production include Groningen, K05a-D, A18-FA, and D12-B.

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
