Centrica Energy

Centrica Energy Website

Centrica Energy’s Exploration and Production business was established in 1985 after first gas was produced from the South Morecambe field in the East Irish Sea.

In January 2010, the business was transformed following the acquisitions of Venture Production and Suncor’s Trinidad and Tobago business.

In the last three years, it’s delivered on an ambitious growth agenda by increasing oil and gas production by 50% to more than 220,000 barrels of oil equivalent each day. The business has also secured its position as a top gas producer on the UK Continental Shelf, become one of the fastest growing new entrants in Norway and has begun its first drilling campaign in Trinidad and Tobago.

The North Sea will continue to be a key part of Exploration and Production’s portfolio, while it also significantly grows its North American operations.

How We Work. What We Do.

We create value by responsibly supplying the energy that fuels people’s lives.

The world needs clean, secure and affordable energy. We meet this need by harnessing our exceptional talent, world-class assets and progressive technology to find and develop oil and gas resources around the world. It’s Nexen’s way of building a profitable and responsible business.

Nexen discovers and develops energy resources in some of the world’s most significant basins – including the UK North Sea, offshore West Africa, the United States and Western Canada. Using innovation, we generate value from our three core businesses: conventional oil & gas, oil sands and shale gas.

Whether it’s using hydraulic fracturing technology to unlock an unconventional gas asset, implementing gasification technology in our oil sands operations, or drilling wells 34,000 feet deep in the Gulf of Mexico, we employ state-of-the-art techniques to maximize production while minimizing environmental impacts.

In all our operations, Nexen’s talented employees are the key to making us a successful, responsible energy developer. We recognize, value and reward the contributions of high-performing individuals in achieving our objectives.
