- HANSA HYDROCARBONS
Hansa Hydrocarbons was launched in July 2008 with substantial backing from a private equity investor. Our focus is on the European Permian Basin where we are building a broad and balanced portfolio of operated and non-operated projects through acquisition, farm-in and licence application.
Our first development, the Juliet Field in the Southern North Sea, has recently received full project sanction and first gas is expected in 2013. This is a transformational event for our business. We operate the nearby Thoresby discovery and hold exploration acreage adjacent to both assets. Our other core area is along the German/Dutch median line where we hold exploration acreage (offshore Germany) and have the L1-Alpha discovery. Further growth is planned in these core areas. We aim to complete the acquisition of four UK North Sea fields in the next few months and new licence applications are also pending in the UK and Netherlands.
