Since 2018, Neptune has invested around US$7 billion, including US$3.6 billion in development capex and US$600 million in exploration and pre-development activities in Europe, North Africa and Asia Pacific. The company also invested US$3.7 million to support global humanitarian aid and local community initiatives.
Neptune Energy’s CEO, Pete Jones, said: “The analysis shows the positive impact that Neptune has on the economies and labour markets where we operate. Our investments put supply chains to work, provide energy for both domestic consumption and export, and make an important contribution to energy security.”
“Our activities also create a ripple effect that goes even further, driving economic growth and benefitting each of the locations where we work.”
Pete Collings, Oxford Economics’ Director of Economic Impact Consulting, Europe, added: “2022 was an extremely volatile year for the European energy markets. High energy prices and prudent cost controls mean Neptune’s direct impacts to European markets maintains its growth.”
“Our research shows that Neptune’s activities continue to provide significant economic benefits further down the supply chain and in the consumer economy.”
