Denmark has a mature upstream sector which is in terminal decline. Hydrocarbon production is all offshore. Reserves are small compared to Norway and the UK, but there are still some large accumulations. The corporate landscape in Denmark has a clear north/south divide. The south is dominated by the Dansk Undergrunds Consortium (DUC), which is comprised of Total (operator, formerly Maersk), Noreco and direct state representative - Nordsoefonden. The north production area includes new entrant Ineos, and legacy players Hess Corporation, Danoil and Wintershall Dea. The Government has called time on the industry, with exploration and production activities to end by 2050. The move affirmed Denmark's direction of travel on climate change.
