Why Energean in Greece


Joining Energean means you will work for the only Oil & Gas Exploration & Production company in Greece. Prinos, located in the Gulf of Kavala in North Aegean Sea, has been producing hydrocarbons since 1981 with an excellent HSE track record and in perfect harmony with the tourist industry and fishery of the neighbouring city of Kavala and the island of Thasos.


The Prinos Oil Field is the main structure in the Prinos-Kavala basin and has produced more than 120 mmboe so far. Energean is also currently developing the satellite Epsilon Oil Field (23 mmbls 2P reserves).


Prinos contains up to 60% hydrogen sulphide gas. The onshore ‘Sigma’ plant complexity is driven by facilities to remove this toxic gas and convert it to Sulphur. Sigma Plant provides future potential where talented people thrive, while Prinos is considered ideal to host the first CO2 storage in the Mediterranean, an up to $1 billion project carried out by Energean and initially approved by EU’s Recovery and Resilience Fund. 


As our business evolves, so do our employment opportunities. Our work culture includes a dynamic mix of professionals, with a diversity of skills and expertise.
