Safety and sustainability are the most important components of MND’s activities. Our priority is protecting the health of both our employees and the people living around us.
We have explored for crude oil and natural gas since 1913. We supply gas and power to up to 200 000 households throughout the country.
By using renewable energy sources we are reducing CO2 generation, thus contributing to the future energy transformation.
We are focusing on reducing CO2 emissions. We are contributing to meeting environmental commitments by using technology for storing CO2 in rock structures.
We cover the main energy markets and raw materials.
We focus on transparency and long-term relationships
“A person naturally loves the region in which they grew up and feels some responsibility for its development. We care about MND’s participation in the life of the community and do everything we can to ensure that people have good lives in our region.”
We have a long-term focus on activities that maintain centuries-old traditions, protect the environment and contribute towards our children’s engagement in sport and knowledge development. We care for our region and create space for communities to cooperate.
Our current projects include the renovation of Olivetská hora (Mount of Olives), the refinement of the Lesopark Bažantnice Dúbrava forest park, and the establishment of Školka v pohybu (Kindergarten in Motion).
We traditionally focus on exploring for and extracting crude oil and natural gas, but are newly focusing on environmentally friendly technologies such as CCS (Carbon Capture Storage), renewable energy sources and others.
We are the largest drilling contractor in the Czech Republic, where we carry out extraction and exploration drilling, drilling for gas storage facilities, and hydro and geothermal drilling.
We have constructed and operate strategically important gas storage facilities.
We supply electricity and gas to a quarter of a million consumption points in the Czech Republic.
Since 2002, we have operated the Stockstadt and Hähnlein underground storage facilities with the capability to store hydrogen in natural gas admixtures of up to 5% H2. This is how we can store transformed electricity.
We have been actively developing activities focused on the exploration and extraction of natural hydrocarbons, primarily natural gas, in Ukraine since 2014.
Here, too, we are focusing on using renewable energy sources. The largest current project of this nature is the construction of the Oriv wind farm.
With our most powerful Bentec 450 drilling rig we are participating in a geothermal well in Cornwall in Britain, creating a renewable, recirculating energy source for the EDEN locality there. With this contract, we have made significant progress in the promising geothermal energy segment.
In the context of the transformation of the EU economy, there is a need to reduce the carbon footprint and to find more ecological methods of obtaining energy. Work with new sources will help us return to the Earth what it is giving us.
MND begins offering extracted gas directly to households. Later in the year it added competitively priced electricity to its offer.
The commencement of intensive exploratory work leading to a gradual increase in natural gas extraction to the current 340 000 m³ per day. The original four exploration licences were complemented with a further two in 2021.
MND participates in the construction and launch of the first private underground gas storage facility in the Czech Republic. The gas storage facility in Dolní Bojanovice with a capacity of 520 million m3 contributes towards obtaining a strategic gas supply for citizens and enterprises in the CR.
Moravské naftové doly becomes a one-hundred-percent private company. Private capital brings technology innovations and the possibility of entering new markets.
MND intensively expands its activities in Pakistan. The discovery of the Sawan gas deposit in 1997 opens additional opportunities for expansion in Pakistan and the Near East.
The merger of all extraction and refining activities in the Hodonín region creates a state-owned enterprise with almost 2 000 employees. After the establishment of the Federation in 1969, this is split into Slovak and Czech parts. Moravské naftové doly is created.
The first discovery of crude oil in the territory of the Vienna Basin opens a new chapter in the development of the extraction industry in Southern Moravia.
