Wintershall Dea, Europe’s leading independent gas and oil company, reported its second quarter 2021 results.

Mario Mehren, Wintershall Dea Chairman & CEO, commented: “Q2 proved to be an excellent quarter for Wintershall Dea. Our strong operational and financial performance allowed us to reduce our leverage back to our mid-term target range. This has stabilised our credit ratings and gives us significant flexibility to follow our strategic objectives.

We firmly believe that natural gas will continue to play an important and reliable role in affordable global decarbonisation. That is why we are particularly excited to have delivered additional gas volumes from our newest developments, Raven in Egypt and Achim Development Area 4A/5A in Russia. Our new division Carbon Management & Hydrogen has been recently established to support our transformation to become the leading independent gas major in Europe.”
