Wintershall Dea sells underground storage facility at Blexen
Wintershall Dea agreed to sell its underground storage facility in Blexen (a district of Nordenham) to Strategic Storage GmbH – a company that is fully owned by the infrastructure investor iCON Infrastructure – retroactively effective 1 January 2019. Wintershall Dea will continue to operate the storage facility for a transitional period to conclude the three-year maintenance programme which began in the summer of 2017.

iCON will continue Wintershall Dea’s successful activity in Blexen. Wintershall Dea has stored crude oil since 1976 and petrol since 2003 in the underground storage facility on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany. The reserves are required by law and are intended to ensure a reliable supply of energy for the public in the event of a crisis. Blexen holds a volume of around 2.2 million cubic meters, making it the fourth-largest storage facility for crude oil and petrol in Germany.

Wintershall Dea aims to focus on exploring for and producing gas and oil as well as the gas transport business.

iCON is a long-term infrastructure investor that holds stakes in the fields of energy and transport infrastructure in Europe and North America. In Lower Saxony, iCON also holds a participating interest in Hanover Airport.

“The underground storage facility in Blexen is one of Germany’s key infrastructure facilities. We are aware of our corporate responsibility and will do all we can to maintain the outstanding relationship with our customer, the German government, as well as with residents, employees and the supervisory authorities,” said Reiner Schränkler, a partner at iCON.

“With iCON, an experienced infrastructure investor in the energy sector is taking over the underground storage facility in Blexen. That’s important when it comes to ensuring supply security in Germany,” stated Dirk Warzecha, Head of Wintershall Dea Deutschland.
