Vermilion entered the Netherlands in 2004 and today we are the second largest onshore natural gas producer in the country. Our producing assets are located in the northwest part of the country with a regional office in Harlingen. Our European headquarters is located in Amsterdam. Vermilion has tripled its undeveloped land base in the Netherlands since the beginning of 2012 and we now hold approximately 800,000 net acres of undeveloped land within the Netherlands. 

We have experienced considerable success in our Netherlands drilling activities with 17 high-rate extension and discovery gas wells drilled since 2009, with an average success rate of 70% over this period.

We have continued to deliver strong, organic production growth in the Netherlands.  Our significant inventory of identified drilling locations combined with favorable European natural gas prices, a reliable fiscal regime and low operating costs means that we will continue to look to grow our Netherlands business unit in the future.
