Together with safety, both environmental protection and responsible stewardship of Austria’s natural resources are paramount in everything RAG Exploration & Production does. Responsibility towards the environment forms a key element of our health, safety and environment management system.
Our pore reservoirs are valuable resources that will prove their worth over the long term. They preserved oil for millions of years in secure, environmentally friendly surroundings, and they will be used to store energy in the future, too. The possibilities are almost endless: from green gas to hydrogen produced from renewable solar and wind power, as well as geothermal use. With this in mind, all RAG E&P projects consider the potential that reservoirs have for subsequent use as renewable-energy storage facilities.
