Egmating (formerly Bruckmühl) and Starnberger See

Conventional exploration - the project will not now or in the future involve the process of hydraulic fracturing ("fracking")

  • Terrain Energy acquired the Bruckmuhl and Starnberger See licences from Bell Exploration in December 2013. The Bruckmuhl licence expired in November 2014 and a new licence, Egmating, covering essentially the same area was awarded for a four year period on the 29th November 2014
  • Located in the Molasse basin to the south and southwest of Munich in Germany
  • Exploration and production in the area occurred primarily in the 1960s through the 1980s and a number of gas and oil fields were discovered in sandstones of Tertiary age
  • There are potentially deeper and shallower reservoirs which can be found using modern seismic techniques
  • Reprocessing and re-interpretation of vintage seismic and well data has identified a number of conventional oil and gas prospects
  • In 2016 a geothermal well drilled at Holzkirchen in the south west of the Egmating licence made a gas discovery in the Rupel Sandstone formation
  • Discussions are ongoing with representatives of the Holzkirchen community to investigate the best way to appraise and develop this gas resource. We recognise that oil and gas exploration causes some public concern and we are committed to open and honest dialogue with communities about what our activities will mean in the local area. Terrain consults stakeholders through all stages of our operations and looks to address concerns through open dialogue
