We are one of the main gas operators and producers in the Netherlands.

We have interests in 22 offshore production licenses, 18 of which we operated, and one offshore exploration license (K1c, 30%).

Operated Blocks K1/J3A (12%), K4-K5 (59%), and K6/L4 (24%) are the biggest contributors to gas production.

Lastly, we hold a 7.35% interest in the Anglo-Dutch Markham field, from which our non-operated gas production originates.

The gas produced is exported to the coast by the NGT, WGT and NOGAT pipelines, of which we hold interests in certain sections:
- 4.66% in the initial WGT pipeline
- 23% in the WGT extension pipeline

Our Vlissingen refinery is equipped with a 12-megawatt solar power plant.

In addition, we created a joint venture with Corbion to produce bioplastics called polylactic (PLA) polymers.

Lastly, we are involved in consortiums that study microalgae cultivation. For example, we have teamed up with Wageningen University in the Netherlands to launch the AlgaePARC project, which aims to develop a new procedure that is more high tech, cost effective and energy efficient than existing solutions. In the longer term, we plan to roll out this technology on an industrial scale and manufacture everyday products using microalgae.

We have a 55% interest in the Vlissingen refinery (Zeeland Refinery). Its close proximity to our Antwerp refinery makes it easier for us to swap feedstock. Most of the crude oil is imported from the Middle East, Russia, West Africa, the North Sea and the Caspian Sea.

We also market petrochemicals in the country, some of which are sourced from our Qatari and South Korean joint ventures.

Lastly, we are active through our wholly owned affiliate Hutchinson, the leader in elastomers processing specialized in sealing, fluids management, anti-vibration systems, and materials and structures (acoustic and thermal insulation).

We have a network of close to 350 service stations in the Netherlands, where we retail our fuel and offer related services.

We also market:
- Petroleum products for general retail sale.
- Lubricants.
- Asphalt.
- Special fluids.
- Jet fuel.

We wholly own PitPoint B.V., a company that retails natural gas vehicle fuel.
