Felix Lerch, managing director of RDG:

RDG represents the next generation of energy companies. As a young, growing high-tech company, we are following a new approach with regard to local extraction of raw materials. We specialise in optimising the extraction of existing fields and focusing on sustainable, environmentally friendly use.

RDG combines the extensive experience of its Austrian founding company RAG Austria AG with the latest technological expertise in E&P and the goal of sustainable, environmentally friendly extraction of raw materials. By using the latest technologies, RDG reduces its impact on the environment and countryside. Fracking has been abandoned as an extraction method. Open communication and dialogue with people in the region, NGOs and local politicians are an essential part of the RDG approach and for socially responsible E&P activities.
