OIL PRODUCTION AND REFINING

DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG

Secure oil extraction

As the operator of the Mittelplate syndicate, DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG accounts for over 50 percent of Germany’s entire oil production. Originating from the Mittelplate Drilling and Production Island, built 7km out from Schleswig-Holstein’s west coast, the resource is routed via pipelines to the processing plants near Friedrichskoog, the location of the DEA’s Holstein oil production facility. The oil is prepared in the land station plants and then taken on to Brunsbüttel and the clients. In the Brunsbüttel ChemCoast Park, the raw material is refined into variety of products. Oil production is a key driver for creating jobs on the west coast as 1,000 jobs can be directly attributed to oil production.
At the moment, approx. 1.3 million tonnes of oil, from which 1.5 billion litres of petroleum products are subsequently produced, are extracted from the Mitteplate reservoir. The stores of oil can also be exploited via the land through extended reach wells which stretch over 9km. The Mittelplate consortium has extracted over 30 million tonnes of oil safely and in an environmentally friendly manner since 1987. Schleswig-Holstein’s annual royalties are a considerable contribution to the German national economy.
