Business areas in oil, gas & industry

We develop new, innovative methods of energy production

In recent years, we have expanded our business mission from the exploration and extraction of oil and natural gas to cover further activities and processes, especially in the field of protecting the natural environment. These include CCS, developing solutions so that we become more self-sufficient in our energy use using blue and green energy sources.
We see potential in geothermal energy, which is one of the closest energy sources to our original business mission. We’re currently assessing how we can use obsolete oil and gas wells to develop geothermal energy sources. Moreover, we’re intensively building renewable energy sources such a wind and solar energy. The largest project of this type is the construction of the Oriv wind farm in Ukraine.
Exploration and extraction of oil and natural gas sources remain an important part of MND’s busi-ness activities, however. Our exploration and extraction activities currently extend to the Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Georgia.

Multi-national drilling activities and probe repairs

We are a drilling contractor that is engaged international activities in several European countries. As well as providing comprehensive services in the drilling and rigging of exploration and production wells for oil and natural gas, our portfolio is expanding. In the past few years, our focus has shifted to drilling hydrothermal and geothermal wells, and wells for underground gas reservoirs. Our mod-ern Bentec drilling rigs can be activated directly through a high-voltage circuit. This allows them to drill deep geothermal wells and limit their greenhouse gas usage.
Our other activities include underground probe repairs and the ecological destruction of outdated probes that are no longer in use.

Energy Storage

We have storage capacities in excess of 500 million m³. We have been building and operating un-derground reservoirs since 1999. In 2001, we built an underground reservoir in Uhřice. Twelve years later, the facility was significant modernized and it is now one of the most advanced and flexible reservoirs in Europe. As of 2021, it is capable of storing hydrogen mixed with natural gas of a level up to 5% H2. This allows it to store transformed electrical energy. One year later, in 2022, we com-pleted the acquisition of the Stockstadt and Hähnlein underground reservoirs in Germany. These are also ca-pable of storing hydrogen mixed with natural gas as transformed electrical energy. In 2016, we launched PZP
Dambořice, one of the largest underground reservoirs in the Czech Republic.

A strong retail brand
We entered the retail segment in 2014. Despite strong competition on the Czech energy market and the unwillingness of customers to change suppliers, we have been able to build a strong brand. Because we realize our own mining operations and price monitoring on the wholesale market, we are able to provide our customers with long-term, competitive prices.

One of the largest energy commodity traders in the Czech Republic
At the same time, we are a major European player in the gas storage capacity market. MND Trading trades in commodities such as gas, electricity, oil, coal and CO2 allowances and is dynamically ex-panding its geographic coverage.

Methanol is a key industrial commodity and an integral part of the global industrial sector

Worldwide demand for methanol is over 100 million tons per year. Historically, the U.S. has been a net importer of methanol, however current gas price dynamics created an opportunity for increased domestic production. Methanol is a key basic commodity used widely in other chemical processes and other high growth end-uses such as fuel blending. We are relocating and rebuilding our methanol plants in natural gas-rich West Virginia. We will offer our customers pure, made-in-the-USA methanol.
