The company with German roots and headquarters in Kassel and Hamburg explores for and produces gas and oil in 11 countries worldwide in an efficient and responsible manner.
Wintershall Dea supports the EU’s 2050 carbon neutrality target and plan to reduce emissions resulting from the use of hydrocarbons by deploying carbon capture and storage (CCS) and low-carbon hydrogen technologies. With our Carbon Management and Hydrogen (CM&H) strategy, we aim to develop a portfolio of projects that can tackle 20 to 30 million tonnes of CO2 per year by 2040. Our CM&H strategy places an initial focus on Northwestern Europe, with future investments in MENA region (Middle East & North Africa) and in Latin America.
In addition, we have set ourselves ambitious and measurable targets in our Energy Transition Pathway: we want to be net zero across our entire upstream operations – both operated and non-operated – by 2030. This includes Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) greenhouse gas emissions on an equity share basis. Wintershall Dea will also bring its methane emissions intensity below 0.1 per cent by 2025 and maintain zero routine flaring of associated gas in its operations.
Wintershall Dea was formed from the merger of Wintershall Holding GmbH and DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG in 2019. Today, the company employs more than 2,000 people worldwide from almost 60 nations.
