Company Description Shell's NAM (Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij BV) is a joint venture that's explored for and produced oil and gas in the Netherlands since 1947, both onshore and offshore. The NAM consists of an onshore asset and the offshore ONEgas asset. These form the critical Heartland for the Shell group producing a significant part of Shell's daily gas (and to a lesser extent oil) production. ONEgas is a large and technically/commercially complex operating asset. The ONEgas operated asset geographically covers the Southern North Sea (all offshore NL and SNS UK), with a number of pipeline systems either connecting to the Bacton gas plant in the UK or the Den Helder gas plant in the NL. The asset portfolio comprises the full range of lifecycle stages, from exploration activities, greenfield and brownfield projects, operate and maintain wells and facilities to produce some 8% of the total UK and fulfilling a significant portion of the NL gas demand. The ONEgas future looks bright with many opportunities, with ambitious goals, and its vision is to be the "Source of Energy in the North Sea". We are aiming to be the most competitive late-life operator in Southern North Sea, for coming years and well into the 2030's.
