Reports on oil and gas activities
The first oil and gas field was discovered in Denmark in 1966, and production has been taking place since 1972.
“Denmark's Oil and Gas Production and Subsoil Use” summarizes activities of the previous year in the Danish oil and gas sector. The report has been published annually since 1986.
Other use of the Danish subsoil, such as for producing geothermal energy, storing natural gas and potential for storage of CO2 (CCS), have been added to the content of the report over the last few years.
