OMV is consolidating its commitment to oil and gas production in Lower Austria. The Weinviertel region is the third most important production site in the company's global portfolio after the exploration and production areas in Romania and Norway.
In line with the corporate strategy, OMV has invested heavily in exploration and production in Lower Austria. Investment in Lower Austria is set to rise to around EUR 400 mn in the next two years.
Until 2016 around 80 percent of OMV's total investment of around EUR 3.9 bn worldwide will go on exploration and production.
OMV CEO Gerhard Roiss: "Anyone striving for international growth needs to have a strong foundation. For us this foundation is Lower Austria. This investment in exploration and production underlines the importance of this region in the OMV portfolio."
