Hansa Hydrocarbons is an emerging full-cycle E&P company focused on the prolific gas basin which extends across the Southern North Sea to onshore Northern Europe. Since inception in 2008, Hansa has built a material portfolio of operated and non-operated projects across its area of focus. The company continues to actively pursue further opportunities to grow the business through acquisition, farm-in and licence applications.
Hansa Hydrocarbons is led by a core management team with a proven-track record of project delivery and value creation from technically and commercially challenging assets in both the North Sea and the international arena. Through leveraging our own rigorous technical work with a strong business focus and committed funding, management is confident in delivering competitive returns over the cycle. Key to our strategy is a mix of operated and non-operated projects; we have established the capacity to successfully and safely operate smaller developments but want the benefit of a wider portfolio without over-stretching our internal resources. As a joint venture partner, we hold material equity positions where we can justify dedicating resources to add-value through conducting proprietary work.
The company continues to progress its portfolio in a disciplined and diligent manner across its two core areas in the UK and across the German/Dutch median line. In late 2013, the UK business was expanded through the acquisition of the LAPS field interests and the farm-in to the drilling of the successful Pharos discovery. A key milestone for the company in early January 2014 was first production from the Juliet field development (UK block 47/14b).
The company is evaluating several opportunities for exploration and appraisal drilling in its UK core area. The award of the 4Quads in the Dutch North Sea in September 2012 led from the company capitalising on its knowledge from the adjacent German H&L Blocks and pursuing a hitherto unrecognised high potential play extension. Large 3D seismic campaigns are being planned for both areas. Hansa is actively pursuing opportunities to add to these core areas through licence applications and farm-ins in the UK, Netherlands and Germany.
