VIDEO: Lex de Groot about the benefits of reusing platforms

Lex de Groot, managing director of Neptune Energy Netherlands, speaks about the purpose and benefits of reusing existing platforms for accelerating energy transition.

“We want to reuse platforms because it accelerates and facilitates the energy transition. The stuff is out there, the platforms are out there, the pipelines are out there.

“We can remove them, we are willing of course to remove them, we take our responsibility but if it can be reused, it’s more efficient to do it and it will make the energy transition faster,” de Groot said.



“Gas will play an important role for decades to come. For the Netherlands and for the world. Gas that we need for this period can be produced from the Dutch offshore.

“Using these gas reserves still to be found, a 100 billion cubic meters according to TNO. By using this, it will allow us to prepare infrastructure for what comes next in the energy transition. So, for hydrogen generation, for CO2 storage or electrification purposes,” he added.
