The company was established in 2010 by Roelof Platenkamp and Erik Steenken who both have long and successful careers in the Oil and Gas industry.
Since then the company has grown a portfolio of mostly gas assets on and offshore in the Netherlands along with mostly oil assets onshore Germany. Tulips Strategy from its inception has been:
Tulip Oil focuses on assets where it can add value by proving a safe, low cost and high value appraisal and development concept on the back of the highest quality subsurface, petroleum engineering and project delivery acumen.
It was recognized early on that Germany and The Netherlands were the preferred locations to focus and mature assets given the remaining potential for maturing untapped reserves, the proximity to market and the stable and supportive ﬁscal regimes.
The entrepreneurial spirit of Tulip Oils’ team, their tenacity and technical expertise have enabled Tulip to flourish and today we employ over 50 employees and consultants and work a strong portfolio of both onshore and offshore projects in both oil and gas at various stages of the Oil and Gas development cycle.
