Operations in Germany

ENGIE E&P bundles its activities in Germany through its subsidiary ENGIE E&P Deutschland GmbH.

Map over ENGIE E&P's activities in Germany

The headquarters is located in the town of Lingen in Emsland, a region that has a tradition of over 125 years in the oil and gas sector. All employees are also active throughout Germany, in regions such as the North German Basin, the Altmark and the Rhine Valley.

The company produced 388,000 tonnes of oil and 5.2 terawatt-hours of natural gas in 2016.That equates to 16.5 percent of Germany’s oil production and 6.4 percent of its gas production. It therefore makes an important contribution to domestic security of supply.

In collaboration with partner companies, ENGIE E&P Deutschland produces hydrocarbons from 53 fields. In 35 of those, ENGIE is the operator and so responsible for all work carried out.

Promising projects all across the country

The company combines its extensive experience with modern technology to secure production in older fields, such as those in the north-west of Germany like Rühlermoor. ENGIE is, however, also developing new projects. These include natural gas production in Heringsdorf, and the Römerberg oil field in the town of Speyer.

The Rhine Valley has favourable geological conditions for hydrocarbons. Oil production in the Römerberg-Speyer field is the most important project in the area and makes Rhineland-Palatinate the third largest oil-producing state in Germany. Since 2007, ENGIE and its consortium partner have successfully drilled seven wells from two existing sites here. The continuing development of the field is a flagship project that offers numerous opportunities. Several exploration projects have also been set up to investigate the additional potential of the Upper Rhine Valley.
