Natural Gas Storage

MND has storage capacity in excess of 500 million cubic meters. We have been building and operating underground storage facilities since 1999. The first underground gas storage facility (UGS) we opened was a unit in Dolní Bojanovice, the Czech Republic, which was later sold. Another storage facility was built in Uhřice, the Czech Republic, in 2001. The Uhřice UGS underwent an extensive upgrade in 2013 to become one of the most advanced and most flexible storage facilities in Europe. In the same year, we teamed up with the Russian corporation Gazprom to build one of the largest underground gas storage facilities in the Czech Republic, the Dambořice UGS. The facility was put into service in 2016. In 2014, we acquired the Stockstadt and Hähnlein underground storage facilities in Germany.

Strong Retail Brand

We entered the retail segment in 2014. Despite the strong competition on the Czech energy market and customers’ reluctance to switch suppliers, we have built a strong brand. Our own production and focus on monitoring wholesale prices allow us to continue to offer customers advantageous prices.

Methanol is a key industrial commodity and an integral part of the global industrial sector

Worldwide demand for methanol is over 80 million tons per year. Historically, the U.S. has been a net importer of methanol, however current gas price dynamics created an opportunity for increased domestic production. Our company US Methanol will own and operate a portfolio of mid-sized methanol plants, with initial daily production of around 400-500 tons. The company has secured a long-term off-take agreement and will sell its remaining capacity to other consumers in the region.
