Germany upstream summary

Report summary

Germany is the eighth largest producer of oil and gas in Europe, although since 2013 it has entered terminal decline. The oil and gas industry in Germany has been in existence since 1860, when the first oil discovery was made at Wietze in Lower Saxony. Prior to the development of the North Sea, Germany's oil and gas reserves were by far the largest in Western Europe. Today, Germany is primarily a gas producing country, with almost all production onshore.
