Exploration and Production

Early history

In January 1946 the Czech Oil Plants (ÈNZ) residentiary in Hodonin was created with further institutions in other localities maintaining production at around 1,000 bbls per day. These were replaced in 1953 by two new companies which were both shut down in 1989 after the fall of communism.  On 1st April 1990 a state company of the Moravian Oil Industry was created in Hodonin.

For recent events see News Briefs.


The first drilling in eastern Czechia (Moravia) within the Vienna Basin occurred in 1900. Although some oil shows were found near the village of Hodonin activity ceased until 1919 when the Moravian Exploitation Company began drilling 12 wells on the Nesyt estate.

Small amounts of oil were produced. During the Second World War Germany took over operations and the DEA corporation (Deutsche Erdöl A.G.) developed a business within Bohemia and Moravia and drilled a large number of wells.
