CRUDE OIL & NATURAL GAS
What types of oil exist?
Who we are
Aitingen is by far the largest oil production facility operating in the Alpine foothills. JenaOil has been operating the production site south of Augsburg since 1979. Around 37,500 tons of crude oil are currently recovered from the Lechfeld plain each year. It is a very high quality, light oil without paraffins, and is processed at the Lingen refinery to produce, for example, diesel or petrol.
Producing crude oil and natural gas in Germany is often difficult and technologically challenging. It requires great technological expertise and prudence.
By applying high safety and environmental standards in its everyday work, JenaOil has earned a reputation for outstanding technological expertise – a key criterion for opening the door to participation in large international projects. Important fields of research are in particular activities to enhance recovery from crude oil reservoirs and production from tight gas reservoirs.
Germany is one of JenaOil’s most important regions for oil and gas exploration and production. Among other things, JenaOil is the operator of the only gas production platform in the German North Sea (A6-A) and has a 50-percent stake in the largest German crude oil field, Mittelplate, off the North Sea coast. Domestic energy is also produced around Barnstorf in the rural district of Diepholz, in Emlichheim on the German-Dutch border, in Landau in the Palatinate and in Aitingen/Schwabmüchen near Augsburg.

While the […]

New Delhi: By Devika Krishna Kumar A production problem at one of Canada‘s largest oil sands facilities drove front-month U.S. crude futures to their steepest premium above second-month futures since 2014 on Monday. Canada is the world’s fourth-largest oil producer and could lose as much as 10 percent of its supply in July after a power outage last […]
NEW DELHI: Under pressure from US President Donald Trump, Saudi Arabiahas rushed to boost oil production — only to discover that global markets might not yet need it.
