The main lesson learned in the debate surrounding the energy transition is that we cannot phase out all types of energy all at the same time. A key component of the transition to renewable energies is natural gas. And here we mean our own supplies – after all, just under 10 billion m3 of natural gas are produced in Germany every year, which equates to approximately 12 per cent of our needs. And more than half of this is extracted from the Weser-Ems region in northern Germany.
Raw material extraction in Germany sounds like talk of traditional 20th century industrial technology. However, it actually refers to high-tech projects with very high technical and scientific standards in the areas of research, development, production and supply. The key issues are safety and reliability, efficiency and sustainability. With our more than 280 years of planning and practical engineering experience, we at DMT play a part in these high standards being achieved, for example by developing and realising the key components of risk management.
