Backgrounder

DONG Energy is one of the leading energy groups in Northern Europe. We are headquartered in Denmark. Our business is based on procuring, producing, distributing and trading in energy and related products in Northern Europe. DONG Energy wants to provide clean and reliable energy. It is a long-term project, and not an easy one, but we are well on our way.

We want to create value by optimising and developing our total energy portfolio with assets and market positions throughout the value chain: upstream with oil and natural gas exploration and production and electricity generation; midstream with all types of trading, wholesale sales and energy distribution; and downstream with direct energy sales to end customers.

Founded in 1972 

Dansk Naturgas A/S was founded by the Danish state on 27 March 1972 (the name was changed to Dansk Olie og Naturgas A/S in 1973 and to DONG in 2002). It was created as a vehicle to develop Danish energy activities. The company has expanded significantly through organic growth and acquisitions both in Denmark and across Europe. Most significant was the merger of five Danish energy companies in 2005: Elsam, Energi E2, Nesa, Københavns Energi and Frederiksberg Forsyning.​
