RWE Dea establishes branch office in Turkmenistan

Nov 18, 2009 01:00 AM

RWE Dea's Turkmenistan Branch was established in October 2009 and will be headquartered in the national capital, Ashgabat. Heiko Oppermann will be responsible for the new branch office as General Manager.
"Turkmenistan plays a vital role in securing Europe's energy reserves," said Oppermann. "The first order of business will be to kick off the exploration phase for Block 23."

License Block 23 is located in the Turkmen section of the Caspian Sea and was awarded to RWE Dea as part of a Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) in August.
Heiko Oppermann began his career in 1980 with the former Deutsche Texaco, Hamburg, as a reservoir engineer based in Germany and in Texas in the US. After reaching a number of professional milestones, the 55-year-old engineering graduate rejoined RWE Dea, the successor company of Deutsche Texaco. Among other duties, he managed projects associated with the oil production from Germany's biggest oil field Mittelplate.

RWE Dea has been operating the Mittelplate Drilling and Production Island, located in Schleswig-Holstein's Wattenmeer tidelands -- a nature reserve and national park -- without incident for almost 22 years now.
"In particular, the experience gained in the field of shallow-water development of resources in an ecologically sensitive environment will also stand us in good stead in Turkmenistan," explained Oppermann.
