Equinor opened its first German office in Düsseldorf in 1984. Then, as now, the focus was on reliable gas deliveries. Equinor Deutschland GmbH later moved to East Frisia - first to Emden and then to Etzel, where Equinor operates a natural gas storage facility through its subsidiary Equinor Deutschland Storage GmbH. In addition to the gas business, Equinor is also present in the offshore wind sector in Germany. Together with the operator E.ON, the company invested in the „Arkona“ offshore wind farm, which is 35 kilometers off Rügen in the Baltic Sea. The 385 MW big park was opened in 2019. Equinor has had an office in Berlin since 2014 that is responsible for government and parliamentary contacts. The Berlin office is managed by Bjarne Lauritz Bull-Berg, who is also Equinor´s Country Manager in Germany. The managing director of Equinor Deutschland GmbH is Olaf Rosemann.
