Dr Thomas Radwitz has been appointed General Manager of the Egyptian subsidiary of DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG. Egypt is one of the core countries for the German upstream company.

Dr Thomas Radwitz, who is well experienced in Egypt‘s and the North African upstream industry, succeeds Dr Hans-Hermann Ecke, who has been General Manager of DEA Egypt since March 2015. Dr Ecke has served the company for 30 years in different managerial positions and will now retire.

“I am looking forward to DEA’s upcoming tasks in Egypt”, said Dr Thomas Radwitz, new General Manager of DEA Egypt. “At our own operated onshore gas development project Disouq, in 2016 we continue to invest in infrastructure, like pipelines and the gas treatment plant, to add the already discovered gas fields to production. The production of the West Nile Delta project is scheduled to start next year and we are working full steam with our partner to get this important project on stream”, Radwitz adds.

Dr Thomas Radwitz, a petroleum engineer, has been responsible as Managing Director for the Suez Oil Company (SUCO), the joint venture of DEA and the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) from 2006 to 2008. In the following years, he was in charge of DEA’s operations as General Manager in Libya (2008 to 2014) and in Turkmenistan (2014 to 2015) and also as Managing Director in the UK (2015). In addition to this comprehensive international experience, Radwitz spent another eight years of his career, working in various positions in the oil and gas industry in Egypt and Libya between 1992 and 2001.

DEA is active in Egypt since 1974. During the last three decades, the company has produced over 640 million barrels of crude as an operator in the Gulf of Suez. In 2013, DEA started production from the own operated Disouq gas development project in the onshore Nile Delta. Disouq has allowed the company to double its daily oil and gas production in Egypt. DEA is partner in the West Nile Delta project, which is planned to start production in 2017. West Nile Delta is expected to produce 1.2 billion cubic feet of gas per day, which constitutes approximately 25 percent of Egypt’s current gas production.
